Neat shot Steve. I have no idea what it is but it looks like a triceratops.

Very nice find and well captured Jerry. The beetle belongs to the Dynastidae Family, common name Rhinoceros Beetle, Official name - Strategus quadrifoveatus.

P.S. With all due respect to 486dx2 above, Jerry'sbeetleis misidentified, they are missing the2horns on top of the head,see attached photo of above ID.

Nice macro Jerry, bet youre pleased the way it came out. Re the Id, I agree with Emmanuel, the beetles in the example shot he posted are a different species, albeit pretty similar.

Thanks everyone for the repies. I found it very interesting, as it was the first one I had ever seen. Surely, they must have been around, but guess I never really looked before. Amazing how the older I get, the more I see the world around me. :-)

Don't know why the repeats, execpt that when I hit the send button, it appeared to be hung up. When I refreshed it showed up three times.
