    I don't know what kind of bug it is either, but I do know it is a nice picture. Can you provide any information of the specs of this picture?

    Digital Rebel. 1/250 sec, F10, 400 effective ISO, 28-90mm lens, shot on 90mm macro. I took it at a local botanical garden a few months back.

    (Ain't digital wonderful? I'd have no clue as to setting without the camera remembering them!)

    hey liz...great shot... i dont know the true name, but its what we always called a june bug...
    you can tie a string around thier leg, and they will fly in a circle over your head.... ( hey in arkansas, you do anything for kicks...)

    cool shot, girl... love it!

    It is almost a self-portrait in a June bug (or "Japanese beetle", as some on here know it is)! :D Very well focussed.

    What does 400 effective ISO mean?

    OH I'm SO glad we aren't the only ones who did that to June bugs!!!!! And you had to make sure the string wasn't too heavy or they wouldn't fly very long!


    Thanks for all the kind remarks guys!!!

    Its a digital camera so it isn't real film speed...just effectively works like it as far as telling the camera what parameters to operate in. :wink:
