That's a nice extreme macro shot of the beetle. Good detail in this image. What did you for lighting up the image?

Thank you! I used a hot shoe mounted Godox TT350P for lighting. I would like to experiment with off camera flash and a soft box sometime.

Thank you! Luckily there was no wind, and I used “catch-in-focus”.

What an interesting creature you've caught!
Fascinating in its "beauty" but also almost repugnant.
Angky.
