Hi Tanja,
it's funny, today thor68 also has posted the same insect - and I told him I never saw such a beetle before. And now you also have such an interesting one here, that's magic!
I like your arrangement so much, very well done, thanks

Hello Tanja,
until today I have not seen such a bug and right away there are two posts here on TN.
Wonderful shot, Lovely details and great POV and DOF. Great colors also.

Bonjour Tanja
Félicitation pour cette très jolie prise de vue en macro. C'est vraiment un bel insecte et les couleurs sont justes avec une belle fleur en prime.
Félicitations pour la netteté et les détails.

Merci pour l'envoie et Bravo....JP
