[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The longhorn beetles or long-horned beetles (Cerambycidae) are a cosmopolitan family of beetles, typically characterized by extremely long antennae, which are often as long as or longer than the beetle's body. In various members of the family, however, the antennae are quite short (e.g., Parandra brunnea, figured below) and such species can only be recognized with difficulty from related beetle families such as Chrysomelidae. The family is large, with over 20,000 species described.

Hola Shir.
Me gusta la composicion con este insecto andando de puntillas sobre una nube de estambres. Para sacar algo de detalle en los negros con tanta florecilla blanca tuviste que hilar fino con la exposicion.
Gracias y buen fin de semana.

Good pov and dof.
