Hey guys, here's my first shot at trying to get actual macro shots. I always heard the DOF was small, but you don't really understand how small until you actually start to shoot! Anyways, I went out looking for bees, but they wouldn't stop flying around, so I gave up to go inside. Until I noticed this little guy hanging on to my lens. I dropped him off on the deck and he posed for me for about 10 minutes :D

CC welcome. I would love to know what to do better next time. I"ve got a flash on the way, so that may help.

Thanks LordV and Bas. And thanks for the ID. Looks like it's a Megacopta cribraria which is usually found in India and Chiba. It's only been in the US since 2009!

Very nice, it seems to have an unusual dome shape like a ladybird and the markings of a shield bug?
Great shots!

Thank you mandokid, killerclown, and Ishrani!

Killer - Yes, it is a very strange looking shield bug. I knew what shield bugs were, but I had no idea this was a part of them.
