Photo of the Day: Coelopleurus exquisitus

There is an embarrassing story that goes with this photo. Right after I took the photo, I sneezed and knocked over the camera mounted on a tripod. Of course, the lens hood of my Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 SP Di macro lens landed directly on the delicate shell, crushing it into pieces. I’m such a klutz!
