Ummm, can I ask what the beetles are doing? Maybe this should be X rated? Great macro by the way.

very nice macro, my original entry for this challenge was almost identical to this, 2 beetles only on a different plant, composition is good, focus is good, well done

Nice catch. Attractive subjects. Looks a little oversharpened and the lighting is a bit harsh.

LOL, great title. Nice composition. Too bad about the harsh glare. Still, good job. =-)

Wonderful beetle macro. Focus is just right for the subject and wonderfully composed.

You might want to suggest "get a room" to these two. :)

this is a great picture, I think you could have eliminated some noise from the backgound to make it look yet better

'Come on and take a free ride, yeah yeah yeah yeah..." :) Very sharp. I like it.

great shot of beatles "doing it"

Ooooh another pair of bugs... Again - the sheen and colours are beautifully captured. Perhaps a little too much in shadow but the composition, with the main lead on a diagonal right across the frame, is excellent.

We had the same vision for this contest!

good shot!

Very crisp. Something about the shading bothers me, but I love that the beatle casts a shadow. Makes me think about the life in the garden we don't see. Well Done.
