[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is CARABUS AURATUS. Many thanks to Lou (euroblinkie) for ID!!
We have spent four days between 1st of May and 4th of May in Bieszczady. In my opinion Bieszczady is the wildest part of Poland. It's a part of Carpathian mountains.
This photo was taken on 4th of May. We started from Przelecz Wyznianska (pass) went to Polonina Carynska ridge and returned the same way.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
Sorry, can't help you with this bug.
A beautiful insect both in colours and pattern. The picture is well composed, but the DOF is a bit shallow, because of the rather big aperture.
Well done.

Hi Maciej,

The color of the bettle is really vibrant and shinny, like painted with gold and glitter. The bug stand out against the muddy ground.


Hi Maciej,

The insect is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Carabus Auratus. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
