    I think the first is a female stag beetle (shot with a polorizing filter to keep the glare down), the second two are the same before and after landing, i was just pleased to get it on the wing and the second is so as some cleaver person out there can tell me what it is please, possibly some kind of long horn beetle, the third one i have no idea, but it is very small (4mm) and jumps.

    I love looking at bugs in pictures. I hate them in real life haha.

    I really love how you captured that one beetle in flight! But sorry, I can't help you identify them :(

    Thanks prism, the flying one was one of two that were almost right out of about 20 manual focus, lots of running and tripping up etc. The last one was kind of cute the way it moved?!?.

    I think that i have a tentative identification, in reverse order, a corn flea beetle (but it was in france not america and i dont know they are native here or their name), a longhorn beetle and a female european stag beetle.
