Processing applied: This shot was very green, the beetle is green and so was all the plant life in the background, so to draw your interest to the beetle I have changed the background from green to B&W in PS/CS, I think its now a more interesting shot now.

You did excellent in replacing the background, good idea.
This beetle would make a nice macro shot also .
