Jerry, what a terrific macro. Really great detail and I too would have been interested to see one of these.

Nice one Jerry. Looks like one of those Staghorn Beetles I used to see as a boy in England but guess it is just similar

I agree, seems they are still trying to line it out. But thanks for letting me know it wasn't just my system.

Thanks, I did take quite a few of it, tried a head shot, but couldn't get the light right.

Thanks Fred. We always had the beetle we call a June bug, but this thing was about ten times larger and with the horn, which really caught my attention. It was the first one I had seen.

Here is a link to a page of beetles of your home state. I did not go further then the page I am sending, but it appears that you do have rhino beetles there but your beetle is an Ox Beetle.

Nice shot either way.

(Edited to add) Durn, now it is double posting for me. And I canceled before trying again. Took at least five minutes to go through.

Thanks, Steve. I have seen the one called a stag beetle before many times, but this was my first Rhino type. Just kind of surprised me to see it.



As for the double post, it is happening to more than just us. It happened on this post just now. Instead of resending, I refreshed the page and there was this post.
