Collops predator

Collops beetles, about 3/16 of an inch long, are voracious predators on many of our crops. This one is dining on a small weevil. I did not have my most modern camera with me for this shot and had to use my old Canon 5D MkII and the famously hard to use Canon MP-E lens. But it was fun and the results are not too bad, all things considered.
