The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this Long Horned Beetle was that it looked like an Ox.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: This one is really simple -it was just early in the morning and the beetle was lethargic, temperature around 16C.

When I see small creatures like this I’m reminded of something the Buddhists say, “Every living creature has its pleasures.”

Whoaaaa. I know bugs have little hairs but this looks like he's got fur all over him. I see why you thought he looked like an animal.
