[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When we think of Arkhangelsk, we think of cold, and wind, and something like Archipelago GULAG... but it is a lovely place in summer, when the northern nature wakes up quickly: blooming, growing, feeding, mating, giving birth - doing everything with intensive, powerful, bright will to live.
Unfortunately, I haven't looked for the species of this beetle. If anybody knows, please tell me.
I was testing the macro mode of my new lens Nikkor 28-105, 3.5-3.4. Seemed to work well.
No PP, except resize and slight sharpening
