Garden Beetle

Tonight during a quick macro photo session, I noticed this little beetle fly onto a nearby flower, I jumped at the chance and was able to snap off a couple shots before he flew off again. To get in close I used my Opteka 10X Macro lens on my Nikon 35mm f/1.8G. I also used the live view mode on my D7000 to help get the shot cause the flower was in an awkward spot.
