Macro Photography

Digital cameras have advance to the point where anybody can take extreme closeups of really cool things, allowing them to see more than they do with the naked eye. My Canon a610 camera, has one such feature. I found this beetle in my back yard, set the camera to the macro mode, and fired away. I may post this picture on, and see what the experts there think this beetle is.

  1. Not a beetle, but a hemipteran (true bug) - a small group related to stink bugs called "burrowing bugs" (family Cydnidae). The white margin reminds me of the genus Sehirus, but I'm no expert in this group.
