Initially I thought this was a little too colourful, but the more I look at it the more I like it. Nice shot. Love the eyes. Great 'teeth' too. I think the iridescence gives the impression that it's out of focus even though it's not. That probably hit you in a few votes.

Thank you. I'm an absolute beginner in macro photography, so I didn't expect an outstanding result, but I was quite impressed about what the 5D was able to do at high ISO settings (and also, denoising software's efficiency). Iridescence was killed in my tries with flash strobes, so I tried with ambiant light only (on a very cloudy and windy day). A great learning experience.

Lovely! If he (she??) is of the species I think, those little buggers are heck to photograph. Nice capture.

I like the way you bring this out but the pp is over saturated, isn't it?

Wow, this is an EXCELLENT shot of a metallic beetle, they are very difficult to not reflect yourself in - I'll assume this is from one of our best at DPC.

Great shot, just awesome.

Lots of iridescence. Almost pretty, up close like this.

Love those colors. Good composition but could do without the border.
