Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci)

I often hear from people that there is nothing interesting to photograph at home, or when they are out and about. Today was an interesting day as whilst I was sitting at my desk I noticed this little guy walking across my phone. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to grab my camera (Nikon D5300) and macro lense (Sigma 150mm) whilst I was on a break and grab a few quick photos. I loved the colour of this insect and from what I can see from various site across the internet it appears to be the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci).

 

I did find the colours on this very interesting, but it goes to show there is far more around your home or work than you would think that can make some interesting and different photos.
