I am weary of orchids and of posting pictures of orchids and yesterday's was the last for a while. I thought I'd post some pictures from our peregrinations last summer, both here in Washington and elsewhere. This is the first and was photographed in Turkey Run State Park in Indiana last summer. We camped there for a week with some of our children and grandchildren (more pictures to come), and this insect was photographed one morning when my wife and I were out for a walk.

I had no idea what kind of insect this is and had no references that helped, though I assumed it was a beetle of some kind. It was quite small and quite difficult to photograph since it was moving all the time and the light was not very good. This was the best of my pictures, though I think my wife has several that are better. Thanks to zxgirl for the identification, which appear to be correct if you follow the link that she gave in her comment.

Pretty & showy little insect =) Nicely captured!
