Amazing Carol - how does he lift his head up with the long horns? in proportion to his body they are huge!! Love the front on in V2. Brilliant.

I don't blame you Carol, a swim in the morning, lovely. I could have swam from the carpark to the office yesterday, it rained really hard......

Anyway, this is a great set, the light in the first one is gorgeous.

Quite a hairy beetle but those antennae are something else! Why does it need such long ones? I'd have thought they'd be so vulnerable.
But 3 excellent shots of this willing participant in the photoshoot, Carol.

Looks kinda cute in his furry jacket, Carol. Three beauties.

Three beauties all in good detail, I like the way the tentacles fills the frame making the eye look beyong the "furry" jacket, good macros well presented

Three amazing images , do like the side view in V1.
Don't know whether to envy you all those visitors or be glad,
we only get spiders and the odd slater (can't say I like them though).
