Chromatic Choice (Tumbling Flower Beetle, Mordellidae)

I’m going to ignore the fatal flaw of this photo (except to point it out: that blurry bit of the parsley in the foreground. And say: it’s a crying shame). I think (I think) I like the black and white version better. Usually, it’s hands-down the color version for me, but it’s close so I’m going to feature the B&W this time.

I’ve been thinking lately whether I should just put the best version up and let the other go — sometimes I wonder if both together does neither its full justice. I’ll probably just go with the ones I have already processed, and maybe in the future develop fully only the version that works best. (Color version below.)

One thought on “Chromatic Choice (Tumbling Flower Beetle, Mordellidae)

  1. I’m not trying to be contrary but I prefer the color version, as I usually do. The thing I like most about the color version is that I see the beetle is black with grey markings which for me is not what I usually see. Ignoring bees and wasps most black insects I see are all black without the interesting markings of this one. Kind of ironic that what I like most about the color version is the black and gray. :)
