    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!

      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. :-)
