This beetle was milling around inside my cabin, and showed up just in time. Yesterday morning i was pouting about how all the bugs go away in the cold, and I love all the non-blood sucking ones so much I hate to see them go. I never thought about a bug that was season transitional like this one...
AKA, i don't remember ever seeing a beetle with a little furry coat on? Have you?
Animals grow in their winter fur, so why not beetles too?
I love the muted but contrasty colors in monotones of brown, black and a golden shine.
Can any of my fabulous astute readers identify this beetle? Maybe find out if it comes out specifically in the chilly cold?
This beetle was so relaxed, it didnt even care that the GOOGley EyEs of GAWD were watching it!!!
um, yes... This is what I look like when I get down on the ground and move up toward the bugs I take pictures of. Also when I come after them with googley eyes (or gumby). (The Beetle is in the front foreground of the pic below, partly cut out... the dark brown dot at the middle front edge.)
