I have spent over the last hour trying to identify this beetle. I'm giving up! Hopefully I will figure out what this guy is some other time. This image was shot in fish creek park. I went there to get my landscape fix and somehow ended up on my knees in the dirt shooting more bugs! I did take a couple of landscapes, maybe I'll process them tomorrow.
This is a single image processed in Colour Efex.
Looks like I needed a bit of nudge in the right direction. A suggestion of a stink bug prompted me to look at pictures of "true bugs" and this where I found this guy. He is a Lyngus bugs and are known for their destructive feeding habits.
