Many of the beetles I met were attracted by the light at night, the set-up with plants, logs and other forest material on the balcony proved rewarding as I often got a natural looking background, always better than on a wall.

Comments welcome on this thread

Longhorn Beetles - Cerambycidae

Well, the beetle didn't care much for backgrounds, it came cosily sitting first on my leg and then on my hand. Hilarious!

A patient model! It first landed on my knee, but let me put it anywhere I thought would be suitable for a nice portrait! Hilarious!

Chalcolepidius zonatus
I recognized this one from my previous trip, only didn't have such an inspiring background. Rolling my eyes.

Deilelater physoderus
This beetle was great fun! It had true spot lights. Challenge was to photograph it in the pitch dark, using flash killed the effect, putting a strong light on it also, the only possibility was to use a very high ISO of up to 6500 or more..and the result is still poor in relation to what the eye registers.
The first picture is with flash..

In the daylight when its spot lights are turned off! Probably another species..

This one looked like a shiny jewel when upside down, like it did when disturbed, playing dead. Hilarious!
