The Flower Chafer beetle.

01 The Flower Chafer Beetle-Ashok Kallagunta.JPG

The Flower Chafer is a beautiful, shiny, emerald green, and quite large beetle.

Flower chafers are small, stocky beetles that come in shimmering bright colors. They look like round little dumplings. The most popular are the emerald green flower chafer, the pachnoda marginata and the Derby's flower beetle.

These animals don’t live for very long but, as long as you look after them properly, you can enjoy the next generation. Flower chafers grow to around 1-2 in (2.5-5 cm) and live for around 5-7 months.

when we go very close to the subject depth of field become very shallow and lighting the subject is more challenging and if you use higher aperture like F/32 you may get some part of subject is in focus, I used external flash to add more more light in the frame, since I am using external flash, wherever light travel that comes in focus remaining part won't be visible in the frame due to this I get black background.
