Hallo Lou,
Mooi kevertje op deze bloem. Prachtige metallic kleuren. Uitstekende scherpte en diepte in de foto. Erg goede compositie.
Goed weekend,
Dit was, na 40 jaar, mijn laatste werkdag. We hadden vandaag het jeugdjournaal op bezoek en ik mocht het schooljaar uittoeteren vanavond op tv. Nu volop tijd om te fotograferen.

Hi Lou,
very nice shot with details and lines on the petals. The colors are splendid and the details are so special.
The existence of the bug makes this shot so special and attractive.
Well presented shot.


Hello, Lou
I especially like this photo because a longhorn beetle is rather unexpected in this setting. Most such photos feature a bee or butterfly. I also like the contrasting colors of the gold colored beetle against the lavender color of the blossom. Very nicely done -- Thanks for sharing it.
