Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

This was a hard pic.. these beetles love to hide in the folidge, so I teased it a little for it to come out, then the little bugger wouldn't stop crawling, I waited, finally stood still for me, got the shot I wanted, I have no idea what species it is
