Longhorn Beetle


Photo Information
Taken with K10D and Sigma 105mm macro.

Lots of these (Rhagium bifasciatum) about last Saturday, and conveniently they freeze when you go near them.

Very short depth of field and the bug is perfectly focused. Well done!

I wish all my subjects froze when I got near them!

Lovely shot, like the earthy tones and the focus is spot on.
