    I was lucky enough to catch nature's food chain in action yesterday. I don't know the specific species of beetle, just know it's a type of predatory beetle. As for the nymph,....that's the one I plan to research for a species because it is probably the coolest looking bug I've seen yet.

    Thank you.


    Mis-labled this thread by the way...it is a predatory stink bug...not beetle.

    Here's a couple shots of the back of a similar one.

    Thanks to my 2 1/2 year old son for spotting this one for me.

    Sorry for the late response. Lens used was Tamron 180mm f3.5. Thanks for the comments.
