Love the way that the leaf at first merges and then totally becomes as one, with the background

Absolutely superb, as a composition, as a wildlife study. We're face to face with a tiny alien world here.

being a very handsome beetle, he is of course encouraged to have his own website. twitter won't do, as beetles don't tweet. Unlike politicians Smile
