Violin beetle!!! First time seeing one for bear with me for posting so many shots of this rare beauty:)

Found it in Maliau Basin.

Maliau Basin Part I: Maliau Basin | Up Close with Nature
Maliau Basin Part II: Maliau Basin - Part II | Up Close with Nature

From wiki:
Violin beetles are ground beetles in the subfamily Lebiinae. [1]They live between layers of bracket fungi.

There are four species.

Mormolyce phyllodes Hagenbach, 1825 — Indonesia, Malaysia
Mormolyce borneensis — Borneo
Mormolyce castelnaudi Deyrolle, 1862 — Malaysia, Thailand
Mormolyce hagenbachi Westwood, 1862 — Malaysia

Did you pick up the same bug and place them on different backgrounds?

I don't know, but it just sounds funny to me for nature shots.

I think the photos need some saturation and/or contrast bump to help them pop more.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

molested_cow...funny...i like the colors, sat and contrast as they are because it's more natural.
