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,
