This is awesome.
I was getting the mail today and on my way back down the driveway, I spotted none other than a huge Broad Necked Root Borer hanging off a Lily leaf (if that’s what you call them). I ran back down to the house and grabbed my camera with Sigma 70-300mm lens attached. This lens came in handy once again. Really glad I got it. I wouldn’t have been able to get nearly as close up with my other lenses.
I took a bunch of pictures of this beetle. I also got some video. I’ll post them both below. If you want to see my previous post on a beetle like this, you can view it here. If you want to see a sample of what my Sigma 70-300mm lens can do, you can see it here.
