|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Some kind of bug (sorry I don't know anything about insects) between the spines of an Echinocactus platyacanthus at Wirikuta Desert, San Luis Potosí. It might be drinking some water from between the ribs of the cactus. In sunnier days, they may also hide in there, seeking for shadow.|

Hola Javier, I like this shot! The insect hiding in the fold of the plant with the spines for protection - well captured.
I think some fill flash may have helped you make the insect stand out more.
TFS and welcome to TrekNature - you'll enjoy it here.
Looks like it is caught behind barbed wire...
Good but muted colours... fine details!

Hola Javier.- Bienvenido a TN.- Buena foto de este escarabajo escondido en el cactus, posibelmente resguardandose del sol fuerte del desierto. Saludos Luis52.
