Ruptela maculata: for cedryk
Nice shot Petru!
It has great colours and details, nice lighting too. I just have feeling that the beetle is overhelmed a bit with the flowers that seem to be the main subject.
But the photo looks great anyway and I like it.
WELL DONE & TFS

Thank you very much for such nice words :-) I'll always do my best if you have something to identify. Within my knowldge limits of course :-)
I like your shot - the main object isn't too big but it's nicely illustrated in the natural environment. I like the colours and contrast as well.
The species you posted is closely related to the one that Monika (thistle) has shown today, but it's not same.
Both species are common in Europe, their larvae feed on various deciduous trees (life cycle 2-4 years) and the adults feed on flowers.

Great composition, a piece of art! Good DOF and very nice details, dynamics taken care of by diagonals... Well done, you did it again!

Very nice shot Petru! Good use of flash, saturated colours, good details and sharpness. Interesting subject, thistles are great also!

A good shot, but I keep wanting to zoom in to see more detail on the subject. It nicely shows the habitat though, well done!
