Unknown Scarab Beetle

Dear Jessi,
Since this is a photography course and not a biology course, perhaps you do not need species specificity.  This is a Scarab Beetle in the family Scarabaeidae, but we cannot provide a species name at this time.  You can try browsing BugGuide for some possibilities.
