I'm not an expert but it looks like a stag beetle - they used to appear in my croft house every spring and autumn for a couple of weeks. Bug specialists will give you a more accurate answer Good shot, I'd like to have seen a bit more focus down the body, but nice and sharp at the front.
Colour one works best for me because you shot it at exactly the right time to capture the blue evening sky. The mono ones lose that and don't have clouds to add texture to the sky as a replacement. Excellent shot, I also love the glimpses of the feet as they scurry along the bridge, they really add a sense of both movement and purpose.
Excellent pose, lighting, colour scheme and photography, just first rate. The processed effect is overcooked though. The scratch effects would cover the entire surface, not just the edges, the edge effect is too dark and murky. Nothing wrong with vignetting, but it looks too artificial.
