Chrysobothris astartae Abeille de Perrin, 1895
A mounted specimen of a Moroccan jewel beetle from my collection. I got it from friends, they collected it in the Saharan region. Its length is 10 mm. I've made stacks from 3 different views, all of them were stacked in Combine ZM. Here I used my regular macro lens with extension tubes and 2 fluorescent table light diffused with paper roll around the beetle. Selected from my archive, 2009. 3000px
