Have you got a laboratory where you created strange and exotic insects Carol? I find you're shots so educational and interesting and this is no exception. Beautifully sharp, great images.

Looking at the antenna (which isn't hinged half way along) I think this is a form of Ant Beetle (when I 'googled' it I found some similar, but not the same). What a brilliant capture, well seen!
