Very well done technically, good detail and lighting.

Composition wise, IMO it's always worth trying to position the insect in the more "natural" way. Those are not hard to position with a bit of patience, and resul is much more pleasant to see.

Best,

- Macrero

Hello Macrero,
Thank you for the hint!
This bug has been dead for many years and run dry Sad

They can usually be re-moistened in a relaxing jar even years later. Of course it risks the specimen a bit.

Hi Adi,

as Lou said above, you can rehydrate dead insects even years later. Beetles/Weevils are particularly easy to rehydrate and "restore".

Best,

Hi Lou, hi Macrero,
OK, I will try :-)
So, I have already put this bug in a kind of a wet chamber (cream-box with a piece of the wet paper).
