Leaf Beetles (Calligrapha bidenticola).jpg

A tiny Calligrapha bidenticola leaf beetle crawling across the top of rough tree bark with a green nature background. A fun little bug that gave me much grief while I held my hefty DSLR in one hand while holding the tree bark in the other hand and clicking off a thousand shots until I got some keepers. Does wonders for one's arthritis...! :)
As always, I released it back into the great outdoors. Literally - outside my apartment front door. Of which I'm sure it was very appreciative.

    We suffer for our art don't we? It was well worth the effort though. Lovely little bug. Great macro as always.
