Yeah, I know those guys very well :-) Thera are thousands of them in Botanical Garden here. I took few photos of them and probably I'll send it after Romanian flood ;-) I like colours on your picture Monika, shinning blues and fresh green. Good composition and BG. And, of course, I like your spiky logo :-)
This is a very good post; the picture in combination with the WS, the note and the title really tell a story and that's great. Composition of the photo is very good and the colors are great. These little bugs seem to be painted with metallic carpaint. ;) I do think the details aren't so sharp. It's almost like the outerlines are distorted. Did you crop a lot? The POV is very good. TFS!

Well they are here in the UK too today , have taken a few shots not looked at yet of a lot of these on the side of pond they seemed to congregating to mate.
Not the sharpest image , possibly slightly too enlarged as an image, but we can still see them well.
like the new thistle sig.

Hi Monica, very nice post of these shiny insects. I wonder what do they find on those leaves.
Very good Dof and composition.
Great capture Monika,
the have such a great metallic blue shine. Good composition and as always, great notes.
I've found a similar beetle in a book I have. Gastrophysa viridula - commonly green, but can have a strong blue sheen. found in waterside habitats, about 4-8mm.
Hope this is of some use, thanks for posting

Fantastic colours on the beetles, and I like the lack of colour in the background, almost black and white, makes the main subject stand out even more.
