Beetle mania

You can be fairly sure that spring is firmly ensconced when you see the beetles in droves again.

I remember when our youngest dog was still a puppy and chased these things all over the place. He was such fun to watch.

Martha Z said...

Yuck!

Hilda R.B said...

I haven't even seen a beetle yet! Spring can't get here soon enough.

Clint said...

The birds love 'em---especially the ducks.

Lovely beetles.

The photos is really interesting; the beetles are cool, but I love the ripples in the water; nice job Tex!

June bugs freak me out. Their legs are so sticky. We are having a crane fly infestation. One tried to fly into my mouth as I was trying to unlock the door to get inside.
Nasty.

Millie said...

Ewww. Icky.

Beetle Mania...what a hoot! But a very artistic capture...especially for bugs. I browsed your photos to catch up, and really love your bird shots. I've been having a good time photographing the birds that are visiting my Birdie B&B. I have to sneak up on them to get the close up shots. I really need a zoom like yours....maybe one of these days. I took a look at your camera collection....nice!
Thanks for your visits to CITexas Gal...I really appreciate your comments!

Gone Country said...

Nice photo! I had a bunch of them in our rain buckets the other day. Of course, I had to 'rescue' them so I scooped them out!

Becky and Gary said...

So much to look forward to with Spring. We get June bugs. I'll take it! Bring on Spring.
Thanks for stopping by.

Julie Harward said...

Oh yuck! And with us it's spiders! ;/

Farm Girl said...

Yes, every single warm day the June bugs which are really called May beetles come out in March or April.
We have this really giant one that gets on the porch that puffs up and blows air like a leaking tire. They still amaze me. Now though, I catch them and give them to my chickens because I love watching them play football. :)

Deb said...

we call them June bugs...haven't seen any yet...

Farmchick said...

I haven't seen any here yet, just the ladybugs.

Randy said...

Were they singing "Help?"

Angela said...

We don't have many of that type of bugs around here. It's the Asian Lady Bugs that plague our house! Those are the worst! If you squash one it puts off a terrible smell and it stains whatever it was on.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!
Angela

Those four guys aren't as cute as I remember them in 1965.

Katie said...

Yikes! No beetles for us or if there are they are hiding under a snowbank.

When I was growing up on the middle Texas coast, we always called those June Bugs. I don't know why, since they showed up a long time before June. I haven't seen any in the Ozarks yet but, no doubt, will soon.

Sandra said...

they do the same thing here, but in our backyard pool. and yes, i have also photographed them many times. we have tiny ones and great big ones with horns

barbara l. hale said...

I don't think I've ever seen beetles in water like that. Very excellent photo! Up here, one usually sees them eating some flower or tree seems.

Rose said...

I have been seeing live insects again, though I don't think any are out today. It is downright cold here today...with a cold wind.

Allison said...

Ok...this just creeped me out. Seriously, my neck is itching! :D
