Hi all again!
my cousins send me this info about this guy:

Order: Coleópteros
Suborder: Polifágos
Family: Escarábidos
Género y specie:Dilobobderus abderus
Vulgar name: little bull beetle


Hi All,
ok, not a trekking pic, not something i have found while walking on moutains. My brother and I were having lunch at Alemania Park, when we found this small guy The park is full of these scrawl and in a moment they appeared above our tupper! So we have to share the lunch with them.
According to my brother, is a beetle rhinoceros, but we do not know.
Is amazing how strong they are and how do they move the horn. And they are full of hairs! its a nice and very pretty insect to see to walk among the pasture.
I hope you like it, and sorry about the tupper! but is where better the details of the beetle are seen. Greetings!

Spettacolare insetto, eccellenti POV e DOF, bella la composizione "picnic" con l'ombra riflessa, buona nitidezza. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Nicely done macro, Brenda. Great details, nicely composed, and nice control of the exposure (black subjects are hard!). Well done.

Hola Brenda, excelente macro, con buena definición, luz y color. Un saludo

Hola Brenda,
Excelente el macro que lograste de ese torito. Se ven muy bien los detalles de su anatomía. Te felicito

Impresionante y bello escarabajo Brenda. Buena profundidad y colores. Por estas zonas cada vez quedan menos insectos de estas especies.
Un abrazo desde España y te deseo una buena Semana: Josep Ignasi Tejedor.

Hello Brenda

What a wonderful capture of this super rhino beetle.
It looks like a battle beetle with that horn,something from a movie.
The focus is spot on and the textures show well.
Wonderful colours and details.
Great job.

Excellent photo of this horribly looking beetle! So sharp and clear, and the little fur is visible! I did not know that beetles had hairs!


Excellent depth of focus here.
The tupperware background works well, no camoflage for this rhinoceros beetle
