Cantharis fusca

Cantharis fusca is a species of soldier beetles.

C. fusca can grow up to 1.5 cm long. Except for parts of the head and thorax, which are red or orange, this species is completely black. The body is flat and long, with a weak exoskeleton. These beetles have long feathery antennas, and comparatively long legs.

This species is common in large parts of Europe, and lives in bushes, edges of forests, and meadows. They hunt for small insects.

The larvae have black hairs, and also eat small insects. They are very cold-resistant, and can be seen crawling on the snow in winter.

Hallo Nemes,
an interesting but difficult point of view! However, you managed to achieve
pretty good sharpness and great depth of field. Colour saturation is a bit strong in my opinion.
best wishes, Peter

Imi plac culorile din imagine, bokeh-ul este foarte frumos, o culoare pe care si eu o prefer ca fundal. Felicitari.
Cele bune,

Buna septimiu,

Fotorafia ta cu acest croietoras este foarte buna avand imaginea clara si culorile intense dar natuarale. DOF-ul ales este buna aratand clar toata insecta. Sunt astfel vizibile detalii ale corpului si capului. Contratsul dintre culorile insectei si fundal arata foarte bine.

TFS si toate cele bune,

Hello Septimiu,
A fine macro of a Soldier beetle getting his balance on a rush stem. I like the POV taken with excellent sharpness and lighting and the central composition against the OOF green BG works well here.
TFS and best wishes,

superb job & best wishes, thor.
