  1. Such a vibrant, vivid beetle! Posted 2 months ago
  2. Yet another epic specimen <3 Posted one month ago
  3. I love your macro pics, Ferdy! I'm filling up my beetle list with these beauties. Do you have many more to come? No pressure <3. Posted one month ago
    1. Thanks! I have 7 specimens left to process from this batch, only 1 is a beetle :)

      It was kind of a winter stock, this whole series. It has costs a huge amount of time to work through it, but it makes for great practice in this tricky hobby.

      I might take it a bit slower after this batch, or perhaps I've come accustomed to it and continue, not sure yet. What I do know is that there's no shortage of subjects. The supplier I got them from has many more species. Might be fun to involve you in picking a few from their "catalog" when the time comes. Unless you have poor taste, then I'll say it got lost in transport.

      1. Yay for more specimens! It's so fun to anticipate what you will post next.

        Oh, and my taste in arthropods is impeccable.

          Note that it may be a while before I order again, so you have lots of time to think about it.

            1. haha, just the beetles section is about 15 pages. I anticipated you'd feel like a kid in the candy store :) Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
