For the past week or so our ceanothus bush has been a-buzz with flying insects, including this large black beetle.
Nice to use a little selective colour for a change too.

With an open topic for this week’s Macro Moments Challenge, I’ve chosen this image of a dragonfly feasting on a stem of tiger grass by our pond. Note the delicacy of the lace structure of the wings; there’s also some wear and tear on a couple of the blue plates that cover the abdomen.
Nikon D800, 70-200mm f2.8 lens at 200mm. 1/250 at f8, ISO400. Cropped and adjusted in Lightroom.
