Wet Beetle by FauxHead Wet Beetle by FauxHead
Armed with my spray bottle, this awesome beetle got a shower on a chunk of exotic wood. Using three different exposures, it was also given the HDR treatment.

To be honest, I'm so ENVIOUS! If you see the list over danish beetles, most of them are just... Boring...  AND IT PISSES ME OFF! I'm such a big fan of beetles - but in Denmark the only cool beetles are either very rare or extinct... When I grow up I wanna be a illustrator and beetle-breeder! :D

Thank you so much! You know, I'm really glad that you're not just like all of my friends - they all think that insects and bugs are stupid and they don't really care about them - you're a great person! Where do you find these bugs again?
