A nice capture of this metallic bug,with good colors and details,I think however that the impact of this capture could have been improved if the beetle was a bit off centered,for example by cropping a bit from the left side,anyway tffs and have a nice weekend

Outstanding shot of this shining Beetle. Very neat and sharp image with nice mettalic colours and perfect lighting. The petal presents a fine contrasting base and you have captured a fine pose here. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

This is a nice composition. I like the dark BG, good color and detail.
It's also an interesting POV, and the metallic colors of the beetle look great..Good use of flash.

Hmm, your palette of photography is getting larger... insects now! Such a difficult subject. I have tried many times, still no satisfying results. But you present us a beautiful little monster that looks as if you had sprayed it with carneval colours!
I'm kidding. But it's a fact that the colours are surprising and amazing.

Seems like this little bugger has put her best dress on..!
The finer details in the shiny appearance is well captured, narrow DoF works well and isolates the insect nicely...
A well balanced composition!
