With no rain and climbing temperatures there are few enough bugs around so I make the most of what does show. Again, since this beetle was quiet for a while I picked the leaf and shot for different backgrounds while varying the angle as allowed.

Mark we are just starting to cool down here, I have noticed the past few years we seem to have many more of this same beetle coming around. Have ya'll been under drought conditions by chance. Nice work.

Nothing special Andre, just shooting to underexpose (JPG's ooc) which has the advantage (to me) of saturating colours. Then I will push it in Picasa which usually takes a few seconds.

Thanks Tom. We had a couple recent years of rain but the forecast is for none for the next few months at least - drought is coming. There's nothing in the fields to shoot, and little in the garden.

JPG's Out Of Camera (no raw developing), underexposed slightly to keep highs and saturate colours. I also use a noise reduction and sharpening program which has its pros and cons.

Ahh ok , i got it ,but why underexpose when in theory is better to overexpose( histogram to the right¿? ) thank you Mark!!

It's better to correctly expose ... in theory. I underexpose (slightly, mostly) primarily because of limited dynamic range of a small sensor and It's best to at least aim to keep the highs as they are more significant to the eye. There are significant tradeoffs with my cam.
