Detailed Description

More clean up of the Bee Lab's picture files.Is this an alien? Or is it a beetle. I don't know because it only mentions that it is a beetle from Carroll County, Maryland. Any guesses as to genus/species? Picture taken by Wayne Boo. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, 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.
