In an earlier thread (http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=32227) there were pictures of a brown marmorated stink bug, which didn't look anything like what we call stink bugs. I looked it up, and what we have here are Pinacate Beetles. They eat cactus and such and stick their posteriors up and spray you if threatened. Crying or Very sad





They kind of trundle along the ground slowly, but are quite agile - you will find them in awkward seeming positions on cacti quite frequently.

These photos are taken with a Nikon D3300 with a simple 55-200 mm lens zoomed all the way in to 200 mm from a few feet away.

Interesting. Good to know which insects have "concealed/carry" permits. Smile

Common names can cause confusion. Where I live everyone refers to cicadas as 'locusts'. Drives me nuts.

Old topic - new pictures!

I'm no biologist, but I'm guessing that there will be some new Pinacate Beetles around here...





Both with Nikon D810. The first is with the standard 70-300 mm cheap-o lens, cropped, and the second with an old manual 180 mm Nikkor ED with an extension tube set. Hand-held, no flash.
