Lily Beetle (Lilioceris Lilii)

By Techno      
Thank you for your votes/comments on my last posting much appreciated..Special thanks to those who thought it deserved their valued user awards, pm sent, cheers everyone.....Wink

Continuing with my recent interest in Close up (Macro) genre, off I went around the garden looking for likely subjects, it is so surprising what is lurking around your prize plants when you make a detailed search.........Blush

Swapped and changed between the 3 extension tubes (recently added to the bag) during the garden shoot, and this shot was made with 36+20 mm added together, make what you will of that concoction....WinkWinkWink

An excellent close up of this vibrantly coloured beetle, Mal.
The detail is spot on.
It looks as if it can't quite decide where to begin its feast of your prize plants!!Wink

Such a bright and cheerful colour for a beetle, and yet it enjoys lilies, and so do weSad. It makes a good subject for a photo, though.

Never used extension tubes yet, but yours have worked ok. Cracking macro capture

And what a beautiful photo. I think the 60 mm macro on my Oly will get me that close.
