[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beetle was identified in my previous upload by Ivan (Argus). It belongs to the cleridae family with world wide distribution of its many species with their wide variety of habitats. This possibly is Trichodes ornatus, not sure. The cleridae beetles prey on other insects and some, like this one, are flower visitors where they eat other flower dwelling insects as well as pollen.

No PP treatment except resizing for TN and subsequent moderate sharpening.

Hi Neels!
A lovely composition. Great sharpness and perfect exposure. Excellent blurred BG, which makes the subject stand out very well.
ciao! Vanda

Hi Neels,

It is well frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the beetle and of the rose. The blurry background is putting in evidence the rose and the beetle. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
