Unidentified beetle on Japanese Anemone bloom

1 09 2011

I photographed this little bug while it was munching on fallen pollen “chips” from this Japanese Anemone flower in the Demonstration Garden of the Spooner Agricultural Research Station in Spooner, Wisconsin. I’ve made an attempt to identify it but haven’t been successful (yet).

I like this photo a lot! Normally when I look at macro shots I feel like I’m getting a glimpse of something small, but this beetle scales things down even smaller, effectively making that flower look like an absolute giant, instead of a flower that someone got a close shot of. It really changes the perspective of the shot in an interesting way, not to mention the interesting composition. Great job!
