this fine macro shot illustrates perfectly the little beetle hard at work,the details are nicely clear and the colours very true to life.
Best regards Les.

Thumbs up! This is one of the best photos today on the Trekearth, IMHO. Outstanding photo, I have never seen this beetle in action. Excellent presentation of this amazing bug.
