  1. Nice species intro! And love the shot. Posted 10 months ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy, I've seen the beetles plenty but it turns out that most of the times I tried shooting a series, all that resulted was garbage (restless buggers). This is one of the very few usable shots in hundreds :-/ Posted 10 months ago
  2. Gorgeous photo of this hairy beastie! Posted 10 months ago
    1. Thanks Christine - just a tad too much of my notorious "zooming disease" to also get the hairs on the shoulder within the DOF I'm afraid, but overall it gives a good enough impression of the beetle I suppose ;o) Posted 10 months ago
      1. Definitely - I like it and think it's a great shot. Posted 10 months ago
