This was the very last picture I got with out camera before it got broken. The boys and I saw two of these little beetles on our walk back from the park that day. They were together but far enough apart that I couldn’t get a good picture with both of them in it.
I’m not really a fan of insects, but I do sometimes find them interesting. I really like the colour on these ones – the way they shine blue. It’s particularly noticeable on the back leg in this picture.
That said though, I don’t care how interestingly coloured they are, if an insect starts flying at my face, especially if it makes loud buzzing noises, I will be beating a hasty retreat.
