Super set Carol and an interesting narrative.

12 May 2014 6:32AM
Well that is an interesting name, Carol...
Interesting to see how much they vary in colours.
Males & females, perhaps.
Your macro work is always very good and these are no exception.

What an interesting bug!
She has the armour of a rhinocerous, the head gear of a princess, and shines like a precious jewel! WOW! Grin
12 May 2014 6:42AM
You must have a vast archive of bugs by now, Carol.
All of great quality.
It would be a shame if nothing further was done with them.
These are no exception.
(We have them here, too - but only for a week or two).

Thank you, thank you, thank you, you have identified one of my favourite models here in Spain. At last I will be able to address them by name!

Lovely portraits of these handsome beasties.

I have come to the conclusion that Crete must be over run by bugs and beetles but you make them look so attractive.

Marvellous macrowork Carol, i've not seen a variety like v3 before. These are really impressive given that they may bugger off at any time when you are trying to photograph them!Grin
