Hallo Manee
A beautiful, well taken photograph of this Blister Beetle that is known as a pest because of all the damage it does to crops. The colours are bright and beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Manee,
Great macro of this beetle in superb sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Very good depth of field. Nice blurry background and an excellent choice of composition.
Good weekend,

hello Manee

thanks greeting lou

First of all, I thank you for your kind critique on my picture of a Peacock Pansy.
Though you too have been here on TN for 5 years, I wonder why we have not interacted with each other through our pictures.
Coming to your picture of the Blister Beetle, I have all praise for your dexterity in using your compact Powershot. The macro image is sharp and crisp with a very fine DOF.
The yellow markings on the abdomen of this Blister Beetle make me curious. Here in India, Blister Beetles have red markings.
It is a pleasure to know you through your remarkable nature imagery.
