A Welcome Guest

One day I found a rhinoceros beetle in the backyard and brought it in the house to show Sachi. They seemed too close to talk in this shot - it was a shame that I couldn't figure their conversation out.

    Gorgeous beetle and such a cool series of shots, Marico!! Oh, I wished we had such a beautiful big beetles in FInland, too. There is something really "jurassic" in beetles´. :) :)

    I adore this marvellous series of Sachi and his new friend - what a spectacular beetle !
    That's the biggest beetle I've ever seen - and it is fascinating to see Sachi's reactions.
    Superb !
    Wishing you and Sachi a great weekend !

    Great shots!! I have always like beetles of
    any kind. This one is big enough to have a
    harness and leash! Such interesting bugs. I bet
    it tickled Sachi's nose!

    Wow it is so interesting! I am surprised Sachi can get along with it. I think most cats might attack it but Sachi looks so peaceful and curious over it.

    Thank you everyone very much for taking the time to stop by! Sachi is a 100% indoor cat. I think this event might be a great experience for him to see a little life from the outside world... : ) I hope you all have a great weekend!

    nodouble - mostly away I imagined a beetle with a harness and leash - made me smile so much! : ))

    A very interesting encounter! Our kitties would probably have run away from it. :-)

    にらめっこ対決か・・・・・、カブトムシがSachiちゃんを持ち上げようとしているのか・・・(^ー^)
