In this challenge, let us see photos of beetles, (Order Coleoptera), showing off their beauty and colours. The beetles must be outside in their natural environment, on leaves, flowers, trees, just doing what comes naturally to them, not inside under studio lights. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Refer to http://bugguide.net/node/view/60/bgpage for more information on beetles. (Bugs, order Hemiptera, will have their own challenge later.) No spiders, bees, flies, small cars etc. Size: MAXIMUM 1,600px on LONGER SIDE.
