Question
Bug
Bug  
I was just curious if u could tell me what kind of bug/beetle this is? I found it very interesting that if you look close enough you can see its eyes! Thanks!!

Answer
Jen,

This is a beetle but I can't see enough detail to id further nor do I know where you found it. It could be a chrysomelid (leaf beetle) but again I really can't see much detail. You might want to look through google images for "chrysomelidae" and see if anything looks right.
