Aprés les "lutins",lors de ma balade d'hier,j'ai eu la chance de pouvoir capturer ce joli scarabée.
J'espère que ça vous plaira!

After the "goblins", during my walk yesterday, I had the chance to capture this beautiful beetle.
I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Catherine,
A stunning macro shot of this beetle face to face to the camera.
Marvellous colors and details can be admired. The POV is just fantastic and lighting is superb.
The white flower as base to the insect is creating a lovely contrast and the blurred BG is complimenting.
Well done.

Bonjour Catherine,

Ta balade a été fructueuse en beauté, flore et faune de choix.
La macro est géniale, sublimes détails de ce Cétoine métallisé. Superbe BG pastel.
Jolie composition.
Belle semaine et santé. Amitiés. Yolande

Ciao Catherine,

Your shining green friend gives a really fine pose!

Hello Catherine,
very nice macro shot, I like especially metalic effect and good background,
Best regards Siegfried

Bonsoir Catherine,
Superbe cette Cétoine dorée (Cetonia aurata), qui semble tricoter sur la fleur... ou faire une petite sieste. En général elles ont la tête plongée dans le pollen des fleurs. Ton point de vue est superbe et les couleurs très belles. Bravo!

Catherine, GREAT bug capture! Maybe a fill flash would have brough out the eyes and frontal part of this insect more than what it is. But, that's just my opinion. I know it's not always possible to make such a set up when you don't have the time to choose your oprtions!

Cheers, JoeGoff, Louisvile, KY

dear Catherine,
its shining blue/green back is really like a jewel or crystal of precious essence in nature,
a wonderful macro scene you took,
its blue/green back and little white flowers are well contrasted each other,
and blurred back is beautiful too,
thank you for your excellent shot,

I've always thought these beetles are very pretty. You have done an excellent job of capturing this little guy sitting on the flower. TFS
