A simple black beetle
A simple black beetle at over 10X life size (on my monitor).
It is a good thing that legs bend! (Otherwise walking would be a problem:)
- myla - What a trip -- it almost doesn't look real =) nice macro shot, Dale!
- Bananas! - Wow, although the image is just fine, enlarged this creature looks a bit scary! :)
- Jasmin - I agree - it's so large that it's scary, and I'm also phobic of beetles! A fantastic macro, nonetheless. :)
- Suzy's Eyes/White Lily's - Oh my gosh, this is macro! Very amazing!
- Cameron - Excellent capture Dale!
- Scott McDonald - awsome beetle man
I like the texture of its
back and underneith.
- Cal - Great shot!
- Will Burnham - Great macro image. Love the high contrast B&W.
- Sandra Rocha - awsome macro, the b&w makes it look like its a scanning electron microscope image :-)
- IanSMcN - Great photo Dale ... and surprising how pitted the suface of the glass is !
- papercut - this perspective is great. i can remember the children in elementary school who would torture bugs and bend their appendages clean off. thanks for sharing!
- Tudy - yikes.. wouldnt want to find that in my bathtub.. Amazing shot.
- oliviajoel - this is really great...it almost looks like a fake rubber bettle. IS it real? *shudders*
- spunwithtears - The beetle is very real. He is sitting in a petri dish on top of a silver book; so if you look carefully, he is floating just a bit about the supporting surface. The supporting surface is a silver, false-leather book I have on graphic design. In black and white, the cover looks like opaque glass. I used two strobes so I could use my smallest aperture and have the greatest depth of field. The two opposing lights subdued any shadows and gave the 'juicy' reflections and made it look a little bit like plastic.
- melanie - that's awesome :)

- bonnie - I'm afraid if that was crawling about my house it wouldn't make it to a petri dish.
Please don't ever put a roach up here, my reflex would be to stomp on it.
- Miss A - terrific photo, but i'm a bit scared. :)
- Emily - my first time here.
- Hilde - WOW!
