Hi Lou,to class post another time! A magnificent capture of this iol beetle,the details and the exposure are very very professional,your camera settings are very interesting too. I like a lot the macro in WS showing the beetle eating,masterwork!!! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

hello Laurens
Une magnifique photo macro, très belle qualité du rendu des détails.
Bonne soirée

Dear Laurens,

I like your Oil beetle, you got it in focus from head to tail ! I found a web site for ID of Meloë: http://www.coleo-net.de/coleo/texte/meloe.htm. With this list of European species I arrive at Meloë proscarabaeus (L.). largely due to the nicked antenna, the black colour and the body proportions.

I did some work in the late 60ties on raising

Ciao Lou, great macro of beautiful beetle, wonderful metallic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
