so by now you know when i show an insect it is because i want you to see how cool it is.  i’m not trying to gross anyone out.  buzzybeegirl, r and i find some of the more interesting, lesser known bugs and try to get some good shots.

the truth is, sunday night we saw many beautiful things while buglighting.  very few creepy things. mostly pretty.

so, here is the 11 lined beetle.  (i have been told that’s what it is but i sometimes suspect the brainiees make stuff up to make me look silly on my blog. JUST KIDDING!)

also, just so you know how i get creeped out by bugs, as well:

if the insect is outside i grab my camera, but if the bug is in my house…..i grab my suitcase and the car keys.
