Default True or False?

False - A False Meal Worm Beetle - they play dead if you bother them. Makes taking pictures easier!!

that 2nd shot is fascinating. The dimples/pores in his exoskeleton are wicked. Thought they were noise in the first shot when I first looked at it, then the 2nd shot really reveals how intricate and delicate it's features are. And you don't hardly notice the eyes in the first shot, then they are really well highlighted in that 2nd. I never thought about beetle eyes being faceted like that. These really kinda get me fired up about beetles, makes me wanna go out and start turning over logs now

Nice shots Clint.

The beetle looks like it is made from stitched leather.
