And now for something completely different: a scarab beetle (possibly a Liparetrus from the Family Scarabaeidae).

Taken in my garden in June. I like those insects but its not often they let themselves be seen.

1/60th sec spot metered natural early evening light + flash at 1/8th of its power cropped in Photofiltre

Thank you for the comments on the tulip posted before the week-end.

Have a nice day,


Jean-NoŽl

I like the super-magnified view here. Yes, the probably hide because they would make a great lunch for some bird.

To find a scarabeus means luck! I hope you didn't let it slip away and grabbed your chance. At least you were lucky enough to produce this nice image. Lovely,
Johanna
