    That said, what you've posted here does not look like a beetle, at least not an adult form thereof. It could be the larval form of some beetle, or it could be some entirely different sort of insect. Whatever it is, I think it looks more likely to be a mature form of some insect that is not a beetle, than that it is a larval form of a beetle. It's definitely not a mature beetle.
    I am informed it is a nymph stage brown marmorated stink bug

    I believe this is a Fuller rose beetle, though there ain't a rose in sight on my block

    So what can you tell me about Dragonflies? I first saw this one around 1:30pm today yet it was still sitting there at 4:30pm. Someone on Facebook said they migrate and stop to take a rest. This one was very, very small. Its body was maybe 1/16" thick.

    The only difference I made was to slightly change my position which altered the background color. Both pics cropped somewhat.

    If you look closely at the one with the green background, it's almost as if it is grinning for the camera compared with the other.

    Cindy, this is some sort of damselfly (which is part of the dragonfly order). That's all I can tell you.

    Thanks, Marilynne. That's what I was told on Facebook - it's a damselfly. No matter what it is, it was a cute little thing and wasn't afraid of me being within a few feet when I walked past.
