Nice ultra close up, it is great to see so much details in the face and also in the end of the leg. That mouth looks scary so close.
Congrats for this clarity, great for natural light and the speed used. I am glad you did not use flash.
You forgot a bit of black noise under the bug :D

endlich kommt einer Deiner angekündigten Mistkäfer. Der ist unheimlich eindrucksvoll von dieser Position aus. Auge in Auge, hast Du Dich auf den Boden gelegt? Genial gelungen.
Vielen Dank. Ich wünsche Dir einen guten Wochenstart, tschüssi

Hello Heinz, very nice close-up. The composition is very good and it has good details. Balck and very shiny is always pretty hard to do, I think you did a pretty good job. Well done.

A great super-macro Heinz.You've done really well,considering the light you had and all the reflective surfaces on the beetle.shots like this are hard to get right.
We have plagues of these scarab beetles here in NZ.
They are called Grass-Grubs here and can devastate pasture in great numbers.

I love the details of the knight
Nice macro work.
He looks quite scary, I'm glad you had to use a macro and not a wide angle lens ;)

Wonderful macro, perfect point of focus. A wider DOF would have been nice but it's OK. Interesting note!

I saw this one in your intro page and I liked it
It is a strong composition even partially out of focus. This isn't a bad thing here.
