What a beauty! Excellent capture, with great DOF and good management of light. The details are really impressive. Congratulations!
This is such a strange beetle.
I've seen shiny coloured beetles and hairy beetles,but never a shiny coloured hairy one.
Your composition and POV are perfect.
So is the sharpness and detail.
Everything is just perfect.
A great shot!
Cheers & TFS

An immaculate bug image that leaves nothing to crib about, Radomir.
This is a gem of a picture from your African tour.
Such images set very high standards on TN, my friend.
Thanks for sharing it and best regards.

Thank you so much for your very kind dedication! This is a very fine member of the Jewel Beetle family, all covered with little hairs! Excellent low POV, sharp details and fine metallic colours. I wonder if the hairs are there to keep it cool? So you've been down south - will you be coming up north this summer too??
Many thanks and kind regards, Ulla

A wonderful macro Radomir!
This large Buprestid beetle is shown from a great lateral POV with excellent sharpness, DOF and lighting. How wonderful to be able to photograph such a large Jewel Beetle!
The few Swedish species are small and rare! Thanks and best regards,

What a curious creature! Excellent lateral view and very natural colors.
The sharpness is superb too. And a not common beetle.
Thanks for this interesting posting

This is incredible! Very high quality work of a Jewel beetle in a fine pose on a tree trunk. The details are literally impeccable, while the blurring technique has fully focused it against the background. I also captures some Julodis members but i could not find their exact ids yet. It may be ehrenbergi but not sure!
Have a nice night!
