I found it after 10 years again :-)

Hello Jan,
Fantastic capture of this rare longhorn beetle. Great sharpness and all beautifully in focus. Very nice light on the wing cases and nice contrasting background. Excellent composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Jan,
they are so amazing, I had the chance to see one last year. I love the blue shimmering legs and body, realy interesting insects.
Thanks for sharing yours
