Some info about the Twin spot longhorn beetle, Videbock

This large and attractive beetle is endangered in the UK. It has a long, thin body, and like all members of the longhorn family, has long antennae. In males, these antennae are longer than the body, but in females they are as long as the hard wing cases (elytra). The head and antennae are black, the wing cases are mottled greyish-black, and the abdomen, legs and thorax are orange. Both the common and Latin names refer to the two black spots on the thorax; oculata means 'eyed'

Hi Mikael,
A very creative POV!
I like so much the silhouettes got here, you managed pretty well the exposure to get this moment in the bugs activity.
The inclination of the branch works pretty well for this composition.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Mikael,
Very artistic shot with the stealthy figures having great fun in the evening light. Fabulous effects the light presents and the glow around the subjects looks majestic. Excellent POV and superb diagonal composition. Kudos.

Hi Mikael.
Your subject is so artistic and wonderful. I like your creative approach and fine result of your searches. Superb colour tones, attractive ear with its guests, the reflection of evening sun (I think it is sun) is amazing. Bravo and best regards.
