I like these beetles, they are quite common around here, the males have amusingly large thighs!



Stack of around 150 images, Nikon 10x objective, CZP.

Nice image of a creature I have a soft spot for... you can find a photomicrograph I took of the same species at http://www.friendsofwarnhamlnr.org.uk/insects.html

- makes for interesting comparison of angles of view.
