Your preference to present the Beetle in relation to its surroundings is quite apt IMHO, Alexei.
In this image, we not only see the Beetle in superb detail but also enjoy the visual pleasure of a colourful plain BG created by the flower. The DOF is marvellous, to say the least.

The colour palette in the photo as a whole is very beautiful. Together with the marvellous DOF and great composition it's an excellent presentation. I think you haven't offer any detail at all. The beetle is more a bit oversharpened.
it is Dinoptera collaris(Cerambycidae),Distrib;Europe,Turkey,Syria,thanks and regards..

Nice display of this meloid beetle. Some of these species are quite destructive of garden (not sure of this one). I think your sharpening is just about right and focus is well done on beetle with good DOF. Nice pastel colors. Thanks for visiting my images frequently. I don't have much time to critique, so often don't get many critiques.

Another excellent macro shot. Good composition,amazing
natural colors and sharpness details. Surroundings
beetle is nice too.
a really fine photo, the main subject is sharp and standout well from the BG.
About the sharpness: I don't think it's over sharpen, on my new IPS-monitor it's looks almost ok.
Nice natural colours and well composed.

I think for the title you used this is definitely the right choice. I can almost envision the beetle thinking to itself "which way should I go now". The colorful BG makes the entire scene even that much more eye appealing and the detail is great. Well done!!

I like the pic as it is, in my opinion the beetle is not oversharpened, or at least not drastically, the background blur is great, it helps to isolate the main subject, most of all due to the color contrast also. Your color palette is incredible, and the composition with the insect in the right bottom corner is very pleasant. I think you solved the "problem" (details or color palette) the best way. Nice shot.
Best regards, László
