A well detailed macro shot with the beetle standing out so crisply against the hosta.

I love the way it's just creeping around that leaf and looking into your lens. Wonderfully minimalist colour palette although striking, just the green and red accented by the black legs etc. Outstanding.

Love the way you have captured this (rather than 'flat' on) superb colour and detail.
