Really struggled with this one, not completely happy with the end result, but alas, I have one more to do before the end of the semester!

Udo Schmidt is fascinated by beetles. Now 70-years-old, the retired German researcher has been collecting them since his late 20s. The drawers housing Udo’s awesome collection contain 30,000 specimens representing over 6,000 species.
“Since more than 350,000 species of beetles have been classified, and I have published photos of just 1,600 of them, there is absolutely no danger that I will run out of work,” Schmidt told Wired.
Schmidt’s hobby has taken him to 22 countries around the world. “I prefer to collect in Africa, in the dung of mammals,” he said.
He is inspired by the “overwhelming variety of shapes and colors, beauty and elegance,” of beetles — the largest group of insects in the world. Evolutionary biologists struggle to explain this seemingly excessive diversity.
Thankfully Udo is also a skilled photographer, so we don’t have to knock on his door in order to get a close look at his stunning insect archive. Visit his website and Flickr stream to view many more astonishing images of Udo’s beautiful beetles.
