….on my paddle plant!

i don’t have time to find out what kind he is because i want to post a blog about the dogs then have to run out to the wildlife center, but….doesn’t he look like a muppet????

he’s one of the few beetles i’ve found in my yard that doesn’t have cody bear fur stuck to him! instead he has some sort of spider web stuck on his nose. messy guy.

what beatles song goes best with this insect?

update: it’s a weevil! i didn’t know they got that big! so he’s NOT a creature from fraggle rock. bummer.

Do the Beatles have a song about an elephant?

If I had to name it, I’d call it a ‘spigot beetle.’

You’re really getting good at the bug pics. Do you ever visit the blog, “A Passion for Nature?” I think you’d like it. She has some great dragonfly pics today.

Yes, very muppety he is!
My immediate thought for a Beatles song was “I Am the Walrus” . I think it’s because of the large pinniped known as the Elephant Seal .
