Hi Catherine. This is a fine picture of the small Jewel beetle. You can see where they get the name. You have taken this with a fine top POv showing all of the bright colours of the shell. It stands out well from the cream coloured flowers. Well taken TFs.

The insect itself has an attractive metallic color in sight. The contrast with the background is very good. Excellent layer approach for flowers and faded at the end.

Beautiful picture and wonderful insect Catherine!
Genus Anthaxia is rather small, and it is not easy to take so good picture.
Very nice presentation with interesting note!
All the best,

What a little jewel of a bug, Catherine.
Excellent POV and details.
You captured the iridescence and the colors of the exoskeleton beautifully.
The white flowers offer a lovely BG.

Hi my dear friend Catherine,
An utterly amazing macro capture of this l'il bubrestid from nice POV, wonderful exposure and good DOF control. A big coincidence that i also captured this beauty in the last summer period (i think male one). I sent you some shots of it by e-mail for you.
TFS and best wishes!
