Hello Peter,
I just finished viewing a beautiful metallic blue bettle of Ahmet's and now you present us with this gorgeous metallic green specimen. What a fine and colorful looking insect captured in exceptional detail. I like the way you photographed it in the grass and with such perfect exposure. Awesome shot!!

Hi Peter,

Ron is right. Yesterday, I also shared the picture of a similar beetle from carabus family. But mine is blue. It was hard to photograph the beetle beacause it was very quick.

I liked your POV. Color and details are excellent.



Ciao Peter, great macro of lovely beetle, fantastic metallic colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Peter,
