the refraction of colors on the exoskeleton of this small pot beetle is a consequence of the sunrise behind my back, which is visible in a drop of morning dew. On the other droplet is the view of the meadow in front of the camera...

Thanks for the link to the larger view, Zoran!  The colours, iridescence and images contained in the water droplets are amazing!

What an amazing photo-the beetle is wonderful in itself-so colorful-but the droplets make this pretty spectacular. Good to see the extra large view.

The colors and details on the beetle wings (elytra) are excellent, but the crops add another dimension.

Lovely natural light slow exposure. The dews provide the X factor.
