Found another lens in my bag today...it's called a macro! So thought I had better dust if off and give it some use! Here is a beetle taken today...not sure what type.....please do enlighten me!
Thanks again for all the comments, votes and awards on my last Hare...Fluttering Eyelashes.....really appreciated!
Enjoy the Bank Holiday!
Superb John - found mine as well
Wonderful detail and colours but can't enlighten you though…
A great macro john
I think it's a bloody nosed beetle
Stunning macro John great detail. Think this is a Bloody Nose Beetle.
Looks like a dor beetle, but I'm no expert
…or a Green Dock Beetle, Gastrophysa viridula...
He's a fine fella, John, and so well captured. Carol
Lovely macro, great detail
Excellent macro John, great detail,
An impressive macro Capture John, you should make more use of your lens

So sweet. Hanging on in there.
Superb shot !!.....impressive detail & rich colours.....looks like a 'leathery' skin ?......top notch !
Great macro shot
Glad you found the macro lens
This John is fantastic
Fantastic shot John but no help on the ID. Cathy
Cracking shot, and humourous too.
My beetle book has hundreds of beetles in it, so many look similar . Sorry I can't help with the ID.
Quality image with fantastic detail..........
Glad to make this stunning macro shot 30 John..Lin
It's definitely NOT a VW, John...
No excuses about the weather being 'not right' for wildlife shots, now you have 'found' your macro lens lurking at the bottom of your bag, John..!
Keep this up, it's a wonderful image of a Beetle.
Wonderful macro work, John. Superb detail and well selected dof and careful compositional use of the background to give the image some balance.
A wonderful macro. Compared to the more expensive Canon 100mm l f2.8, this lens looks like it performs very well
It's all been said, John - I can only echo what's gone before!
A marvellous close up of this shiny little fellow, it was well worth dusting off that macro lens to capture this one.
Wow!!! fantastic John, congrats on all your awards.
remarkable a capture for many respects John !..
Shiny and stunning, hope your macro soon gets more air!
Superb! This is back to where you started after you broke your ankle, sold the windsurfer and bought the macro lens and camera. Amazing detail.
What a brilliant macro John!
