Beetle with K-3 and DA 55-300 (non WR)

Cross posted to 300mm Lens Club

Shot this fellow on our deck this morning. We found him when we went out to clean up the debris from a windy night. We are not up to speed on beetle identification, so we have no idea what it is.

K-3, DA 55-300 @ 300mm, minimum focus distance, ISO 400, 1/400" @ f/8

Cropped to 1424x2142 from SOOC JPG. PP with LR 6.3 Tone Curve: Dropped lights to -84, increased darks to +36.

Three more from me... Feel like I've been on a roll! The last of these is reposted from Show me your insects because, well, because I'm especially proud of it. It's a four-shot handheld focus stack at about 2:1 with a rising perspective that I feel renders this (amazing looking) damselfly as stately and menacing. And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

The fortifications are 15th century, the gun is WWII, the hydrangeas are modern.

And the lamp post is surrendering! - I like the juxtaposition of the elements.

I know I know it's not quite sharp. My K-3 couldn't take a sharp image to save it's life!

I don't know about sharpness but I like it and it is plenty sharp for this rookie.

Hadn't noticed the "hands up" and face-like lamp. Too funny!
And thanks for the complement. I thought the juxtapositions were interesting. In the long run, flowers win (where have they all gone?)

I'm really loving my new DA* 60-250 on my K-3!!! It's really stepped up my game.
