A great capture of this beetle.
Colors are great, the colors of the flower fits perfectly with those of the insect.
Very sharp and a nice POV.

The central/diagonal composition worked wonders here Peter, the natural colours of the sharp image are so soothing for the eyes. The cerambycid glows like a small golden brooch on that purple flower. Sure hope to see similar close up studies from you in 2010 too!

Excellent capture to mark the end of the year. This beautiful Cerambycidae is very sharp, with fantastic colors. I wish you a happy new year with a lot of nice wild meetings!

Definitely, excellent technique for photographing insects. A flower and an insect captured quite well, with an approach that meets each layer of depth in her role, very good light for the entire photo. It is a pleasure watching your work done with such care.
I wish a Happy New Year 2010 to you and your whole family. And many thanks for the support with the ID's this year! ;-)

The flower the insect is sitting on really looks like fireworks, Peter. This is a perfect image to bid farewell to the year coming to an end.
Having enjoyed looking at this picture, let me wish you a Happy New Year!
