Nice macro shot.
I like the texture of the dirt and the reflections off the bettles hard shell.
Nice composition and use of light.

Very impressive shot. What an animal.
After 2 weeks camping in France I now get some doubts for the next time ;)

You are lucky Laurent. This beetle is very rare in Poland. You captured it very well - I like brown colours of BG and shinny surfaces of insect. Good POV and composition also.

A great macro of a fascinating beetle Laurent.
When I was a kid I lived on Niue Island (near Tonga) and ships that visited the island had to go way out to sea at night .time to moorThis was because Rhinoceros beetles only fly at night,and Niue has no Rhinoceros beetles.The main export of Niue was copra (dried coconut) and Rhinoceros beetles desroy coconut trees.
You've done a great job of capturing this.

Hi Laurent, I have no time to write a decent comment. I give to you the well deserved smily.
The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.
It is the sower of all true science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty
which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms,
this knowledge, this feeling, is at the centre of true religiousness.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.

Wow ! Il est impressionnant ce Rhino miniature ;-) je n'en ai jamais vu. j'aime ce cliché intéressant. Peut-être un peu plus de profondeur de champ sur l'arrière de l'insecte...
Merci pour le partage Laurent.
