Splendid shot of this larva. Immaculate sharpness and clear details. The focus is spot-on and superb exposure. I like your top POV and the BG. Very very educative note and a wonderful presentation. Have a nice time and hope to see even more amazing shots on your return.

Interesting picture, very similar to one that took last summer and in the same rolled position, soon available in the web in my future website...:)
Details and sharpness are superb. Maybe not colourful and spectacular insect when young but nice to learn about this species.

This is a rare capture - for most uneducated people most larvae look one and the same to peole like me. So, your professional attitude is very educative.

Nice sharp detail seen in this larval stage, with just the right DOF to blur the BG well..And a most excellent & informative note as well :)
I got some shots last year of this same larva in my flower bed, but never discovered what it was. Thank You!

Great details and excellent exposure. Metamorphosis is one of the more astonishing phenomenon in Nature that fascinated me since my childhood!
Thank for sharing this image.

this is an amazingly sharp picture of the beetle grub, yet the background is blurred as it should. Well done, instructive, and as usual, extensive notes that go with it. I did'nt dare to show a picture of a grub so far, but you convince me that it can be done.
Greetings to you, Radomir,

Superb reproduction of this (not favorite for me) creature. DOF is precise as well as the light. Colour are rich and wonderful. Refined work. My compliments and kind regards.

As a child I have seen many of these types of "fat worms" when digging in the ground, but I never knew that it was the larval stage of a beetle. Only ±2 years ago I gained that knowledge here on TN. These grubs are excellent for fishing though.
Great instructive notes (coming from the teacher) accompanied with a fine shot of this beetle grub. The sharpness of the details are splendid and the exposure was spot-on.
Great work as a total presentation and TFS.

Lovely exposure, beutiful colours and perfect details are shown here. The quality of lighting is amazing, looks like a studio shot. Very good magnification too.
I like to discover the scientific names, some of them are really cool :)
Thanks and best regards, Felipe.

Hey awesome shot, I've caught his cousin in the Philippines, in my garden. It looks like I have a lot of them just while digging a small hole to plant some flowers, I found 3 of them.
