Nice composition. I have seen these beetles, they look like human face :). Liked the diagonal placement of the branch. I have cropped it from bottom, since the beetles there were diverting attention. Let me know if you think this composition works.

Keep posting

The repost is better. I would also take off a little bit from the left.

Great shot. Wonderful compo, the lower pair look like reflections of the upper pair. The diagonal twig looks great. The repost certainly enhances the image.

P.S. These are not BEETLES, they are BUGS. Don't know which species...
Here are some major id points:
1) Bugs have a small triangular portion between the wing joints, just behind the thorax. In this case the green "mouth" of the "human face".
2) Bugs lack the outer hard wing casing present in beetles. The wings of bugs, as in this case, are visible. The wings of beetles are hidden under the casing, and the casing is lifted up and the wings unfolded when taking flight.

I like this image. The diagonals look good. the overall green theme appeals to me... I like the bokeh... it is well rounded and soft. The ones mating add to the image. Wish you would have included the one on the lower left corner in entirety...
