Hello Siarhei,
You have captured a dung beetle, Geotrupes vernalis, with the characteristic blue shine. It lays its eggs on sheep droppings and other excrement as well as carcasses.
Nice clear close-up!
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hermoso ejemplar de escarabajo que parece estar blindado con una coraza metálica.
Perfecta nitidez. Un saludo, JL.

Hi Siarhei, well caught this Geotrupes vernalis with a beautiful metalic blue color. Great details too. For me, the insect must be shift to the left!! Overall , superb post, regards, Didier.

Nice compo. Good close up. Take care for flash though:
to avoid too hard reflection and stuff.
Interesting content. Take care for the snakes in the woods of Belarusia or better try to photograph them;-).
