Bug doing Backstroke!
Very interesting shot and amazing pictured situation as ell as interesting note. I like your excellent macro shot, perfect sharpness and details of the beetle, nice reproduction of the texture of the BG. I also like lighting and true colours of the picture. My best wishes and TFS.
loved the title and your notes interesting photo too.
what you didn't give us both sides now, well the underside is nice and furry. Bob gave me this link see if it helps with the identification. http://www.entomology.ualberta.ca/index.html

Excellent capture.I liked harmonious colors,details and cross framing a lot.
Next time, you might ASK the beetle to NOT move its "rump" closer to the lens.....;=))
Nicely photoed, with good clarity, and nice
BG colors. One can almost see the sky/clouds
in the "belly of the beast".....
Great accompanying notes, and overall, a

Hi Jay. Your creative side shines through in this one. Good macro of the insect assisted by the notes and sense of humour. TFS. Murray.
Hi Jay ,Bob Cat here.Great use of those song lyrics strange I can't recall Joni doing it but rather Judy Collins,I guess I don't know Joni at all(aka Roberta Anderson from right here in Alberta).Anyway this is fun photo of that roach like insect as seen from this side as for what it is exactly I couldn't tell you.Unusual point of view gives us an opportunity to see details not ordinarily seen.The colour is good and so is most of the focus and thanks for putting up this one.
