[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Leptura quadrifasciata (four banded longhorn beetle), better known as Strangalia quadrifasciata, is a 'longhorn beetle' (i.e. a member of the family Cerambycidae). It has the long antennae characteristic of the family and, like most longhorns, is associated with old woodland, where its larvae are wood-borers in old trunks and stumps and logs. L. quadrifasciata is said to be associated particularly with oak (Quercus) and alder (Alnus) (Lonsdale, 1991), though willows (Salix) are evidently also much used in central Europe. Nutrition of longhorn beetles appears to be from the wood itself, unlike a number of wood-boring beetles that feed primarily on the associated fungi. Adult L. quadrifasciata feeds on pollen and it is one of the species that can be seen on flowers such as various umbellifers.

Hi Jiri.
I like shared close-up so up, its soft lighting and natural delicate colours, perfect details of the beetle and wonderful blurriness of the surroundings. Composition of the shot is also spot on. TFS and best wishes.
