COLORADO BEETLE !
20-JAN-2007

"COLORADO" BEETLE !

I actually took this picture of a beetle in June 2006 at the Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
whilst on a family visit!I used my old 55mm Micro Nikkor lens at about f5.6 - f8.
I entered a print of this image in the Henfield Camera Club competition last night and gained
maximum points!
I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IF ANY OF YOU AMERICAN ENTOMOLOGISTS COULD NAME THIS BEETLE FOR ME????

Thanks very much. It really is way past my bedtime as it is nearly 1.30 am GMT so goodnight all!

This is so perfect! I love the intricacies you've captured. I'll send a link to this shot to my bud "Dang" (His name is really Tom. He lives in GA., but is very good with identifying buglies) Anyways, this got my vote, Easy!

This is an amazing shot, no idea of the name of the bug, looks like something Dr Who might bump into!

Fantastic detail. I'm looking forward to trying the same in summer. I might look for a close up filter for my tamron!

Nope, I know less about bugs than I do cameras!

But congrats on the "maximum points"!
