Some sort of a beetle (I may look it up later) on wild yarrow which I rescued last year from a roadside. The yarrow is VERY happy in my garden.

PP - cropped, white balance, levels, increased contrast.

Excellent sharpness and details on both the bug and some of the flowers. Well done Mary!

Oh that's good, Mary. I like that the flowers are prominent, yet the bug is what we really focus on.

What a beautiful shot! Everything is so crisp and as the other comments noted, the beetle matches the flowers to perfection.
