Fantastic marco! Beetles are amazing, so sharp and clear! There are many similar species, but please give some more details about size and plant (it can help with ID :>).
All the best!

I always have my doubts about flash but a pic of unidentified mating weevils is always much appreciated.:-)
Well presented and a nice composition.

Fantastic moment, Joe,
I love the good sharpness and the brilliant colours. It's not easy to make a good shot with the Raynox 250. I never made aceptable shots with it ...
So congrats, excellent shot

Excellent capture of these Weevils. The sight is ugly as I could imagine two Rhinos doing the same;o) Very good macro presentation with good POV, DOF, composition, sharp details, good colours and lighting.
PS Just visited Elmley today. Its very good for waders, ducks, predators and owls again. Best timing would be high tide and obviously for owls late afternoon.

an fantastic macro shot from this couple of insects.
Great details, pov, dof and bg.
Fine use of your old compact in capturing this mating weevils. The shapness, POV, composition and lighting are all superb against a pleasing neutral BG.
To help with the ID we need to know size and what plant they are on.

I reckon the old S3IS did a perfect job.
Probably a bit quicker to use than the EOS too!
Can't help with the ID sorry,but the shot is awesome.

Very nice beetles captured during their moments. Amazing sharp details against smooth pleasing silenced background. The perch on that diagonal stem adds perspective to this beautiful composition.
TFS and best regards,

What a super macro showing this couple of Weevils very sharply indeed. A very fine composition too and lovely colours. S3IS did really well here! :-)
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Un macro precioso Joe. Veo que dominas casi todas las especialidades de la fotografía. Bien captados los colores y las texturas. Oportunidad para la captura.
