These beetles were having a good old time on a flower, and I wanted to test out my new 200mm macro lens, so they became the subject of the photo. I really like this lens; it's very sharp and has a tack-sharp field. The only trick is depth of field. I shot this at the slowest speed I could hand-hold--1/200s to get f/13--but the depth of field is still lacking. However, I like the picture anyway.

This is reduced considerably, I will post a native-sized crop of the original.

This is the promised crop of just the head of one beetle. The macro lens has wonderful image scale.
