beetle friend, square

legs and left side rear of yesterday's beetle, along with my hands and cosmos in the background.


this beetle flew into the side of my head yesterday while i was sitting on the patio. i think she was more stunned than i was, because i got to my camera before she got to hers. after picking her out of the dirt, leaves and cat hair and washing her off, she still seemed a bit slow, so i welcomed the opportunity to take some pictures.


normally i just get attacked by bumblebees on my patio as they have a nest built into the stairs and deck above. the beetle was no menace at all since it's clear from the shots that she's far too big to crawl into a human's ear and lay eggs. and though my cat would have loved her, i let her go in the tomato plants.




join team atwood and help preserve literacy in toronto while pointing out to rob ford and his sycophantic shitheads at city hall that libraries are important and deserve funding. online petition here, which i signed and added this comment to:


Rob Fraud and the rest of these moronic reactionary fools are prime examples of the reason why we should be investing in more and broader forms of education and not closing libraries. A learned population would not vote for these hateful imbeciles in the first place.
