Soldier Beetle??

Hi Peter ,
I think this is the Soldier Beetle , nice capture but the DOF is minimum , when you shoot head on you should try at least f 16 for a 100% DOF
I know not always possible due of light conditions but than a little fill in flash is welcome..
Anyway nice shot....;-))
Best regards.....................Fons
