I have no idea what this beetle is so I won't even attempt to guess. But it looked nice and when shot from directly overhead it made for a pretty macro scene to me. It's hard to beat the bokeh the 105 macro gives for shots like this.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
