Very nice try Christophe.
Good colours and nice composition.
The DOF is very small, you need F8 for macro specially when you use clos-up.
Muy, pero muy pequeño escarabajo Christophe.
La composicion y encuadre son muy buenos, aunque el foco es algo soft... coincido con la apreciación de Gert sobre el uso de un F menor.. al menos F5.6 en este caso (sobre todo, teniendo en cuenta la utilización del flash).
Puedes buscar AQUI un difusor casero de PDP para el flash para este tipo de usos.
Very, very small beelte Christophe.
The composition and frame are very good, although the focus is something soft... I agree with the appreciation of Gert on the use of F smaller, at least F5.6 in this case (mainly, consider the use of the flash).
You can look HERE a homemade diffuser of PDP for the flash for this type of uses.

That one could have been perfect without using the flash...
Anyway well done

Very good try Christophe! Good sharpness and colours, DOF too. Flash is ok, but you should try f/8 or more I think.

Christophe, this is good. I think between Gert and Ricardo they gave you all the pointers you need. I found that using a plain piece of paper in front of the flash also diffuses it nicely. Well done.

I see that Gert and Ricardo have already given you the most important tips and my bit would be that if the beetle is standing still (Which they seldom do) you can use a tripod or support your camera on something, and then lower your speed and aperture, which will give you more DOF and richer colors.
I like this shot and seeing the minute size makes this and very good first beetle. Very well done,
Thanks for posting

Christophe, despite the difficulties, I like the shot. Besides, the insect is indeed very small.
