Hi there!

Today the same beetle but from lower POV. Picture cropped from original size, saturation and contrast added. The same location and lighting condition, handheld camera... I hope You will like it.

Thanks for watching, cheers!

Hello Adrian,
a well captured Carabus. You could be happy that it did not move!
Depth of field and focus are well selected.
The underside of the beetle appears very dark so that structural details are not visible.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Adrian.
You have met and photographed a very impressive specimen. I like great DOF and details of the insect and surroundings, wonderful coloration of the beetle (I have never seen it before) and nice low POV. My compliments and TFS.

Hi adrian,

This one has a better pov and comosition with random enough space.

Great sharpness and beautiful colours.


Hello Adrian,
a technically perfect and well designed picture. There is nothing to criticize,everything looks great,

Hello Adrian,
Beautiful photo of this Beetle in clear colours and very sharp. Excellent DOF, POV and composition.

No dobry ten zuk jest! (taki lekko kwaskowy, haha! ;-), a tak serio - fajna ostrosc, bardzo ciekawe detale i znakomite kolory. Mysle, ze fajnie by wygladal na jakims bardziej jednolitym/rozmytym jasnym tle, tak czy inaczej bardzo fajnie!

Witam Adrianie!
Kolejna odslona drabieznego biegacza (nad ID ciagle pracuje ;>). Bardzo fajny detal i dobra glebia ostrosci. No i fakt, ze to chrzaszcz z grupy, ktora zajmuje sie juz pare lat, eh, sentymentalnie podchodze to tych zwierzakow i takich zdjec... :)

Hi Adrian

Great shot of this impressive beetle.
Good POV and sharpness.

Hello Adrian,
Superb capture of this beautiful Beetle. I like your POV showing great sharpness and beautiful metallic colours. I'd guess this is a Carabus coriaceus.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
