  • Green June Beetle Macro Shots

    I was cleaning out the skimmer basket for the pool today and found these guys at the bottom of it. The best I can tell these are just Green June Beetles, if I am wrong please correct me. It's pretty cool the metal flake look in there sides and legs and thought I would try a few macro shots of them. As you can see in the last picture, they died a happy death..... Well that's what I thought anyways but towards the end of the photo shoot they actually started moving around so I put them on the ground so hopefully they make a full recovery and there intimate effort paid off.

      Their color is amazing! as well as the photography. They look like aliens in my opinion. Imagine these things at like a foot long...freaks me out. haha

        Amazing shots, brother!

        I was excited to see these pics after talking to you earlier. Even more impressed after seeing them!

        Glad to hear that they actually lived through the experience. Lol

              [MENTION=16988]thecasualchemist[/MENTION] thank you very much for the compliment.

              [MENTION=18574]JayBoa1372[/MENTION] I agree on the alien part. These beetles are already big, there the size of your thumb from the end to the first joint, but a foot long, lol, I think I would leave them alone!

              [MENTION=10373]bebowebb[/MENTION] Thanks brother, glad you enjoyed them.

              [MENTION=16202]Ardfarkl[/MENTION] Thanks Mike.

              [MENTION=12887]jefrow[/MENTION] Thanks Brian, the lens I was using is a Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM It is a really nice prime lens, I REALLY like it. It also takes phenomenal portraits.
