    I found this beetle dead in my yard so I set him on a flower and snapped away.

    I live in Missouri. This was the first time I'd seen a beetle like this and if it hadn't been dead I wouldn't have gotten near it.

    Thanks. I've never seen antennae like on this one before.


    Thanks. Complements from you mean a lot to me as I'm always so impressed by your photography.
