Detailed Description

Periodically, I take pictures of things other than bees that cross my path. Here, is a small beetle, collected a few weeks ago at Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. Its very small, taken at 10X and that's about all I can tell you other than it likely was collected on flowers along with bees. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 200mm Pentax-m with Nikon 10X infinity microscope objective lens mounted on front , Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.6, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200.USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
