I’m learning that it can be easier to take photographs of insects than to identify them! After looking through two insect guides I believe these insects are either soldier or flower beetles but then again who knows?! (If anyone can tell me I’d certainly appreciate it.) I took these shots at a nearby wildlife garden that we had visited the week before. The vegetation that grows here is beautiful on its own but it also attracts a good number of insects. In addition to butterflies and milkweed beetles, I came across these beetles. The hot weather makes them run around like crazy and the temperature that day was soaring. It’s difficult to get such small moving objects in focus and I was pleased with the results.
