Hi Karel,
a wonderful bug, sharpness is so excellent, also the colours, gratulations. I also had the great luck to see one this year, but it's not so good than yours, I couldn't get good sharpness because I had the wrong lense with me.

Thank you very much, I like it very much, greetings and bye

Wow... what a jewel of a beetle. The iridescence is masterfully captured.
Very sharp details and perfect exposure, Karel.
Well done and TFS. : )

Hello Karel,
A magnificent overview of the musk-beetle, reproducing the metallic shimmerings so well in an appealing perspective! It looks natural, clear and good, so I have returned to it a couple of times today; your note is somewhat short though. Many thanks,

Po tomhle tesaříkovi marně pátrám, naposledy jsem ho viděl před čtvrt stoletím, když jsem ještě chodil do školy. Pěkná fotka, docela Ti tenhle úlovek závidím :-)
Je to opravdu t. pižmový.

Hi, I saw Aromia moschata many times in Orlicke hory in Polish part, I suppose it is quite frequent there. Good details and sharpness.
