These two red beetles were doing their reproductive activity, hiding under the leaf. I hope you do not feel offended......

Hi Ben

Great macro of the Mating Beetles, a superb POv and pose making it a nicely composed shot with excellent detail and really vibrant colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hello Ben,
A great capture. Love those vivid, contrasty colors. Composition is as good as it gets with the near diagonal position (no pun intended) of the beetles. Very well done. Regards,

Hi Ben.
How short your note is. I can't mark it.
Your close-up is simply perfect. I like nice composition, excellent DOF and sharpness of the bugs, wonderful colours and superb exposure. In spite of light spots at the BG whole image exposed very well. Well done and TFS.

Ben, please allow me:

And that's why birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

I've heard that lizards and frogs do it
Layin' on a rock
They say that roosters do it
With a doodle and cock

Some Argentines, without means do it
I hear even Boston beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Great colours here; the green leaves and the red bugs! Tfs Jay

Hello Benyamin,
Good details are captured!
The colour palette makes this attractive, as the colour contrast is pleasing to my eyes...
