Beetle Mania

by Chuck Staruch April. 15, 2021 498 views

I was inspired by a photo that was shared in the community today and I decided to dig up some insect pictures since the bugs are returning after a cold dormant winter.

Not sure what this insect is, but I am going out on a limb to say it is some kind of beetle.

Last summer I saw this guy approach me while sitting on the patio and decided to get down to it's level with my camera.

If I was a bug living on the patio and saw this fella approaching, I would definitely head in the other direction for sure!

Being a big Sci-Fi buff, this beetle might have a future in the next "Alien" movie.

It's all a bugs life, and an amazing world indeed!!

Wonderful macro, and what an impressive animal. #1 upfront is a great perspective.

Another armoured evil warrior! I'm not a bug, but I would head in the other direction just the same!

The insect world is something I am not fond of, but still is an amazing one!
