Remake - Mating Ritual by VintageWarmth Remake - Mating Ritual by VintageWarmth
I think this new one looks a bit prominent therefore i deleted before pic just because of blurry edges plus i was trying to stay away with auto ISO & auto focus or shutter priority. Im still having a hard time to took this photo to get the right amount of lighting and "metering". Manual settings is such a bit pain than using automatic settings but its worth it.)

settings: manual
ISO: 100
S. Speed 1/80
Metering: Average
aperture: short exposure
no flash
lighting:vivid

Chafer beetles.
Now, It took me about just more than 40 clicks to get the right pic..(beetles are different than b4)


No dirty thoughts please. :) Many thanks

i love the great colors you get from beetle shells. I've heard in some places, like brazil, some people use them to make jewelry :)
