Good ID Canonada, I thought it might have been a cockchafer or similar. Nice shot, did a good job of getting details in their carapace.

Looks like he just ran through the carwash and got a wax job too. Great shots.

Thanks everyone for the comments and ID. It was about 1.5 inches long, best guess. I used the pop up flash, but had it covered with a paper towel for diffusion and -1.3 FE.
