Hello Mike,
Another beetle at the top of a leaf..but we cannot see its eyes and head..may be you should have changed the place from where you took the shot or may be the beetle has been too fast :-) Amazing reflections on the metallic carapace.
Have a nice weekend

Hello Mike,
I must agree with Anne, A super macro , but the face always gives the photo it's character. The reflections are pretty neat and the colors are gorgeous.

Hi Michael.
Lovely scene and nice close-up. Pictured insect is very cute (I have not met this species) and it looks on a leaf amazingly. Vertical composition is wonderful and DOF is very good. I think you could to use a bit slow aperture value to get nearest back part of the insect sharper. However, job is excellent at whole. My compliments.
