Beetle Bug

I absolutely love the colors in this beetle.    He was determined to get where he was going and it was hard to keep him still on this leaf, but I love the shot I got. 


Its Macro Monday over at Lisa's Chaos so be sure to stop by for more great macros.  And for those of you traveling this week - I wish you a safe trip!

  11. He is gorgeous - and you did him justice! Perfect focus, and such great colours!! I think he's a type of chafer, maybe a rose chafer?
