Scary beastie

Saw this cute little beetle yesterday and took a few shots of him. On closer examination though, I think he could do with a shave; he’s a hairy scary wee beastie!

  1. Brilliant photos! I’ve taken some on holiday of a moth with just a normal digital camera so not as close or detailed as yours but its amazing what you can see from the photos that you don’t see with the naked eye.

    • Thank you for your kind comment! My camera is just a normal digital one too (Panasonic Lumix T20) but it’s got quite a good macro setting – it will focus down to 5cm away. I’d rather put my camera 5cm away from an insect than put my eyes that close, so it’s good to see the detail when I look at the photos. 🙂
