Bug. On someone else's hand. Flew off a second after this was taken. Yes, it's a real bug.

Great picture - beautiful beetle! I would have liked a little more focus/detail on the beetle and less on the hand - but very nicely done anyway!

I absolutely love this - the juxtaposition (sorry, I know that's a pretentious word but I can't think of any other way of saying it) between the texture of the weathered hand and the irridescent sheen and colours of the beetle is fabulous! Composition, crop and background spot on too! Love it! 10!

Amazing colour, personally I would probably panic at having that insect on me but to each their own :)

lovely colours here! wish the bug was more in a rule of thirds intersection personally! good luck though!(7)

6 - Good contrast and depth. Criticism; difficult, but the focal point allowing the bug more in focus, and sacrificing less skin/texture (whilst a good element), would have made this better in my opinion. Not sure on the frame. Maybe a nudge rotation/composition variation too, but depends what you had to work with. Coloring is good, I just think there is more potential here.
