Goodness me, it looks like something out of a 1960s horror film :o). Excellent clos up Christine, nicely composed too

Nice with the maple seeds for some scale. A handsome bug! V

This reminds me of the scarab beetles sacred in ancient Egypt. Those were dung beetles, but still... This one sounds very good for the environment.

got some big weapons on that head, beautiful picture!

It’s fairly big judging against the maple seed. Good choice for iconic summer shots.
