Hi Laurens. This is a colourful beetle that you have for us today. It has some unusual pattern on the back which you have captured so well. With good detail nd natural looking colours. Well done TFS.

That's an interesting guy, Laurens, and I also love to see the finger so we can compare how big this beetle is.
Thanks and greetings

Hi Lou,

I love this shot of the beetle and your finger! Excellent details of both :-) His horns are just amazing. Nice colors and his markings are so attractive and intricate. It was a great idea to give us a perspective of his size.
