Added a couple more photos taken after it had a chance to dry off. I think the color is probably also more accurate. The lighting setup I'm using is designed to create a relatively soft light. One consequence is that it reflects quite a bit of light from the subject itself. The first photos appear warmer probably mostly because the rock the beetle was on is yellowish. The last two were taken with the beetle on a more neutral colored rock. Otherwise, the same lighting and camera setup were used.
