The birds, the bees, and Japanese beetles
While hoofing it around Seal Harbor, Maine, I happened upon a compact scene that definitely called for a macro lens. Unfortunately, all I had with me was my 24-105 zoom, so I got as close as I could and cropped later.
At first it was just a pair of Japanese beetles (Popillia japonica) mating, but then things got a little more interesting.
