Color me green...
...with envy! :-) You lucky dog! Nice work finding these awesome beetles and even better work getting such a pretty series of images.

 
Wish I'd have shot a few more.
Went back next day, scoured the area, and turned up nothing.

Last wedge-shaped beetle I shot was at Riley. Went back a second time and got some terif images. History hasn't repeated itself on this one...yet. You gotta love these guys!
