    Default The itchy guest

    One of the monsoon visitor at our home, this tiny(comparatively) beetle seemed to manage to sneak through the sliding rails and posed pretty graciously, just below the tube light. Though it seemed to stay frozen at a place for long moments, on close observation, could spot it keep on itching/cleaning its limbs and its body. The velvety texture on the body made it feel very unique and fresh, especially with the hard and almost armour like outer wing (elytra)

    Seems like it is in a studio for a photo shoot . Good to see insects are coming to you . The low angle looks good. I think it has raised its fore leg and placed it on its antennae (maybe part of cleaning process). Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    P.S - Some small dust spots can be seen on the left side of the frame.

    Good to see that many species are visiting you. Perhaps they want to model for you. They are so tiny that from a distance to our naked eye they appear to be still. While removing lenses in the field one needs to be a bit more careful to avoid the dust. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
