This one of my favorite bug photos. While I was out photographing my Azaleas in the Spring I came across this Soldier Beetle. So I started photographing him and then I realized he might be dead, so I tapped lightly on the flower petals and "At Attention" he came. In my opinion there is nothing good about photographing a dead beetle in a beautiful Azalea. So I was very thankful he came around. I guess it was too early in the morning and he hadn't warmed up yet. I absolutely love this photo. The colors are rich and bright and the Soldier Beetle looks great too!
