Vitaly, obviously shouldn't, they make photos look much more interesting. Just I supposed that the beetle wanted to get its five minutes of fame, so did he posed alongside Agrotis. Finally he got them:)

That is some beetle crawling, some Staphylinidae. They happen to fly to the light as well as mosquitoes, sometimes it's hard to avoid their being shot together with moths. Can they be removed later on in Photoshop, not sure if it should be done?

Spoiled Agrotis shoot:)

That's right! Though quite alive. Lies not, crawls :)

Staphylinidae, I guess.

Wonder what is there on the right, lies like a dead.
