Hi Mike, nice shot. The details are pretty good and the DOF is in the right place. It isn't a longhorn beetle I'm afraid, it's a shieldbug Order: Hemiptera, suborder: Heteroptera.
Can't be specific on the ID.
You found a bug, (and in the frozen tundra of the north!) With winter at our doorstep, I thought I would try it on...
Good eye Mike, I am so happy for you to have this find. I have heard that bug withdrawal is not pleasant, and you are in for the long haul.
Good news is, that recently I heard that there is such a thing as snow mites. Good luck :-)
Nice macro shot of this creature.
Details are interesting, and composition is well done.
Great job, thank you.

Yep "Mikes macro lens system" takes some beating. Very nice macro Mike with good light and nice sharp details on upper body. Very well done.

Great macro Mike. Excellent detail seen in the head & upper body. This POV works well showing the top of the insect and its markings nicely. Well done and Thank You my friend.

Nice macro work, love the fine detail.
Nice shieldbug you have caught. Looking in you archives already, the MMLS worked very nice for this one.
Good details, nice colours and good DOF.
Very well done, my friend.
Hi Mike! Wonderful colour and great shot! Been awhile since I've seen your hairy little legs!! Interesting how rough and scaly the exoskeleton is. Is this a bug which does much tree damage? Wood detail is terrific, too! Well done, Linda
