Wonderful photos of a hard beetle to photograph!

Sometimes they *will* just sit there. I approach incrementally and slowly, but often to no avail. Eventually I get a cooperative specimen, sometimes sooner....sometimes later :-)

Another great series. How do you get such good shots without them running off?
