"EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"

Art in death.

Beautiful colors, really.

Super Babe said...

That is pretty cool (the colors, I mean)... though I do wonder... is it dead?

Sharon said...

It's so festive, it looks like a Christmas decoration.

Rachel said...

That's a very interesting beetle. I don't think I've ever seen one that's quite that color before. Proves that you can find greatness even in the strangest places.

Very good photo... amazing details... beautiful colors...

You have a new fan.

Gorgeous colors. I thought it might be a bejeweled brooch from another era.

Toby said...

Great photo. But I'm going to have to disagree with those who say it's beautiful. It's a dead bug. Gross.

Cheers!

Yea, what Toby said. Ewww.

Not only is it dead, it's flattened. I believe it's what's called a "Caterpiller Hunter" or "Fiery Hunter". I've seen these in the woods and they are quite stunningly beautiful... as well as huge.

Come clean, Brother. You stepped on it, didn't you?! :-)
