The weather was dry and slightly hazy, so I know that the chances of finding beetles would be much lower.
The first beetle that I encountered was a Leaf Beetle (Colasposoma auripenne) commonly encountered at Lower Peirce Reservoir.
The next beetle was only encountered after having walked for another 15 min or so. It was a small 5 mm Pintail Beetle.
The highlight of the trip was a first-time-encountered Leaf Beetle. When I first found it, I thought that it was the metallic blue Leaf Beetle that I frequently encountered. As I zoomed in on the beetle, I realized that the shape of the beetle looked very much like the earlier Colasposoma auripenne Leaf Beetle, except that the color is metallic blue instead of metallic bronze color.
A stone's throw from the Leaf Beetle was another Pintail Beetle.
The last beetle of the trip was a metallic blue Leaf Beetle. This was the metallic blue Leaf Beetle that I mentioned earlier on.
Although the trip was not very fruitful, I am glad that I am able to find two first-time-encountered beetles, especially the metallic blue colored Leaf Beetle.
