tiny rove beetles

I found a lot of these little beetles on a piece of fungus – getting a decent shot is like trying to shoot a gnat with an elephant rile. These beetles are about a millimeter long (the  scale in the image is .5mm).

Using Canon’s MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro lens I was a few centimeters away from the beetles (if that) – at 5x it was a challenge to try and find a beetle through the viewfinder. Fortunately, there were plenty of them, so no worries about losing my subject.
