This guy is really "On top of the world". This is beautiful. I like the side view in which you have captured this beetle. It is not often we see it this way. Now we can see the size from a different viewpoint. You have captured the details with great clarity, especially the segments of the antennas. The black, white and yellow contrast each other well and is a great combination of colours. Thanks for sharing.
this is very beautiful shot of this beetle. I like composition, sharpness, colors.
TFS. Best regards, Leonid

I'm glad to discover your gallery and it's a pleasure to^look at your pictures. I like the point of view chosen for this picture and it looks like the insect is served on a tray. The lighting is well managed, too.

A funny pose with a good composition. A lot of details, too, in spite of a difficult subject. Black on black is indeed tough, and you have managed it well.
But it is certainly NOT a Timarcha, I am not even sure it is a leaf beetle.

Simply perfect close-up. It is so difficult to shoot the black beetle especially on white flower. You have done it fantastically. Superb exposure of the image, great DOF and ultimate details of the insect and flower. Smooth BG is looked excellently as a canvas for the beautiful main subjects.
great macro shot, details, sharpness and naturally spring colors,congratulations!
