Beetle, coleopteron. That gender I don't know how to identify. There was a great thicket with many flowers and logically attract insects of all of the species. There were several of them that besides were 'dizzy' practically sleeping!

Dic. Aurélio: "S. m. pl. Zool.
1. order of arthropods, insects with chewer buccal apparel, élitros and membranous subsequent wings. Holometabólicos, larvas campodeiformes or escarabeiformes, the ones which, together with the adults, they constitute serious curses of the vegetables.
[Sin.: eleuterados, elitrópteros.] "

I like the macro. I would like your opinion, I am thankful!

What a clear shot of this beetle, Jose.
Fantastic details and colors.
Well done and TFS. : )

Great macro, composition and colours!

Very nice capture of this insect ! Perfectly sharp and great colors. Almost looks like some kind of camouflage on this flower.

Boa José,
este besouro parece da mesma espécie que fotografei, só que o meu era verde de olhos azuis.
Boa nitidez e cores!!

Hi Jose,
Good detail, colours and sharpness. Composition and exposure are spot on. Good framing and POV.
Thanks for posting, Enjoy the rest of the week.

Tonalidades verdes! Cores equilibradas.
Muito bom. Baixa profundidade de campo (como toda macro). Composição muito feliz. Minha esposa olhou rápido e disse: Pôxa, um melão! Eh... Eh... Eh...

Nice macro, You have good DOF with most of the focus on the beetle. Well seen, thanks for sharing!


Hola José,
Muy bello coleóptero, y buen acercamiento. Lo unico que hallo es que hay un poco de sobreexpoición en las flores y un poco de aberracíon cromática. De todos modos una linda foto.Muy bien la combinación de colores del insecto con las plantas.

José Reynaldo, belo trabalho.

Gosto das cores e do contraste entre o assunto principal e o fundo.

Certa vez, tive a oportunidade de manejar uma F828, e pude verificar que ela funciona muito bem em macros. A prova está aqui.
