Happy, Rafael, thanks for the comments. That bloody red beetle over winters in the soil and as soon as the weather warms up and thelily plants sprout they destroy them. They are 1/4" long by 1/8".

Very nice shots, the red beetle is nice, but, I am partial to the woodpecker. Guess it is because I take mostly bird photos at my feeders and around the pasture while tending to the horses.

Emmanuel, those are incredible! I really like shots 1 and 4, butshot 6 leaves me speachless! How far away from the bird were you, and did you use a flash?

Emmanuel, your Ferrari Red Beetle pics especially #3 & 4 are excellent. Enzo would be proud.

The two woodpecker shots are beautifully sharp!

As a guy who loves photographing flowers, I can truly say that your two flower shots are beautifully composed. The lighting, color and framing are all top noch....Absolutely gorgeous!

Hi Emmanuel,

excellent shots!!

My favorite: #7 - the flower

I have seen similar captures with a special technique: Combining shots with varying apertures and fixed focus. This was taken with a single shot!

You are so far away, but I guess the same ferrari bettle stays in my garden:




Cheers

Sven

Would vote for #3, as the posture of the beetle is interesting, and the exposure is right, and the focus is on the eyes.!

Great shots. I love the red beetle. I have never seen one of those. The woodpecker is quite lovely. )

Jerry, vaiboy, thanks for viewing and commenting.

Jerry, it was the first time that the woodpecker came to my feeder and it was very friendly. I don't usually see that kind of birds in my feeders.

Vaiboy, thanks for the nice compliments. The bird was not scared of humans at all, I grabbed the camera and started shooting and getting closer with each shot. The last shot was taken from 8-9 feet away at full zoom. Hand held, no flash, it waslate afternoon.
