out of focus green beetles on a stalk of grass

There was this one stalk of grass pretty much completely covered with tiny jewel-like green beetles shining in the sunlight. And my camera simply refused to focus on them. Manual focus failed to help me this time (i have to admit i'm not very comfortable using it yet). Here is the result.


  1. i definitely like them more out of focus than in focus. wouldn't have thought so.

  2. i don't think i've seen any of your pictures of them, have i?

  3. no, you have not. they are ugly if in focus. well, or, at least i did not like any of my pictures of them
