  1. Whoa, Lisa, this series is masterful! Posted one month ago
    1. It proved to be a great model. Very friendly and beautiful. The other photo (where it was facing the camera) was a hilarious moment because it kept edging closer and closer to my lens. I stopped when I thought it was going to fly at my face (I love insects but I don't want them on my face haha)! It really wanted to get up close and personal! Posted one month ago
      1. You succeeded! The shots are pinpoint precise and gorgeous, well done! Posted one month ago
  2. I love this series as well! Posted one month ago

The Sculptured Pine Borer or ''Chalcophora virginiensis'' is a metallic woodboring beetle of the Buprestidae family. It is endemic to forested areas in the eastern United States and Canada. Some authors have synonymised it with the western species Chalcophora angulicollis, but Maier and Ivie demonstrate that the species are distinct.
