Excellent beetle photograph! Great DOF and technical quality.
Seeing this reminds me I am intent on photographing an exceptionally rare beetle called the "Pink Coral Tiger Beetle". It is estimated that, at most, there are only 3,000 of this endangered species remaining on earth. They live on a tiny area of sand dunes in southwestern Utah, USA.
I was there once but could not find any to photograph. It was the wrong time of year. I will return during the right time of year to take a picture. :)

It is nice to see you again! And I see that you were in Spain this year :)
Nice capture of Oryctes, species which occurs also in Poland :)
Natural light, good DOF and composition. On the other hand I thing that picture could be a little cutted to better expose main object - an insect :>
All the best,

An excellent close-up of this impressive beetle! It shows the characteristic horn really well. Reminds me of one of the characters in the American cartoon "A Bug's Life".

I am very pleased with your nice comments. I am rare guest here last year but I see you do not share your pictures too. You managed to met an amazing species and take a fine picture. Image of the insect as well as surroundings are fine. DOF is selected very well. Main subject is in focus and surroundings are blurred nicely. My best wishes to you, many new pictures and posts here.
