Such fabulous detail in all 3!!!
I wonder how this beetle co-operates with you for such macros with maximum possible clarity. You did it again - Raja.

3 more top-notch captures. Hope he survived the apparent fall in No3? V1 is my favourite. Like the pose, the clarity and the light in it especially.
