Where do you find these odd creatures!? This one is really unique.
Those horns are wild!
Great shot of an amazingly unique little dude.

Not a Texas Longhorn eh? Englands own variety. More than likely grade A?
I love the way it is posed. Looks like "Vertigo". Why don't insects break their legs when they fall, like humans?
Good crystal clear and colored shot.

It so strong keeps for a branch )))
Fantastic. Nice shot!
But why you have not wanted to clean hair from the bug?!

Very interesting species of beetles, Joe.
The solid looking antennae are longer than the body, so this chap may have special skills to manipulate them.
Fine perspective and horizontal composition with the insect clinging to one end of the stick. Excellent details and colours.
Well done and RFS.

What an interesting little bug ! The body looks like a seed pod and those antennae are something else. Nice POV and good focus for super detail. Well done !

This is really wonderful. The wide composition makes for a very attractive look. Wonderful details on the beetle with spot on exposure and a great DOF. The Green OOF BG enhances the color of the beetle even more.
thanks to your call at my collection I finally discover your site, and this to my great pleasure. Ican learn her how to present a longhorn beetle in an interesting way. I guess you just used ambient light, and had the beetle keep it's antennae close together for good sharpness. The result is convincing!
Thanks for presenting the pic.
My best regards,
