Nice photo
Nice photo, Troy. You can see a lot of details here like the nippers on the front.

Interesting that on mine the "tortoise shell edges" appeared mostly clear, slightly pinkish, while on your beetle the edges appear amber colored. Possibly a difference in the lighting, possibly a regional variation between Virginia and Georgia.
