After dark , trying to find something to shoot. Found this tiny beetle feeding on a flower and enclosed nicely within its meal. Thought the warm colours combo that appear in the image is rather pleasing. Maybe just my perception. ;)

90D, 180Tamron,1/200, f16, ETTL +2/3, some diffusion for the flash and some LED, handhold approach.

Hope its a nice view and comments welcomed.

Vivid colors, and your flash and aperture bring out the details.

Thanks Cynthia. :)

In some ways its a lucky shot, so there's some element of that. ;)

The behaviour is rather surprising. (in an interesting way) ;)
