Stunning shot John. It looks almost metalic!
Love your whole PF - great macro work.
I find these little beetles really difficult to capture - they are very active and reflective! You've caught your's brilliantly!
A rather beautiful close-up insect photograph, which ticks all the right boxes for me.
A superb close-up, John, such a pretty beetle. Carol
Great macro and detail captured.,

Hi Karen, with very reflective insects try not to photograph in direct sunlight to reduce the chance of burn-out from reflective glare, so shadier places are good as this would also be cooler and the insect less active.
This beetle was taken on nettles along a tree lined path on a overcast/cloudy day... making the conditions cool so insects less active and not in direct sunlight.
Hope that helps.
This is a case of a beetle that is really quite beautiful. All insects are interesting but not that many are nearly as attractive as this beauty.
Good point about avoiding direct sunlight to avoid burn out. Same goes for many flowers. TG
Love the contrasting greens.............great capture.
Great capture! Love the beetle
Superb shot !!!...gorgeous quality in the detail & metallic colours !!!
