and so goodbear and buzzybeegirl found themselves at the botanical gardens one evening…..

they heard a buzzing.  more of a hum, or a whirrrrr.   hundreds of figeater beetles were visiting the garden that same night.

here they have found the motherload:  a juicey fig.

figeatermotherloadbut what’s this?

figeaters pasthow sad.  scads of dead fig beetles littering the ground be low.  as you can see, they are a striking metallic green.

there were other lovely critters, such as this resting fritilary butterfly…

butterflythey wandered through the grounds.  they chatted.  they attended a small chinese music concert.  they cursed themselves for leaving their “real” cameras at home.

but they were too hungry to last long at the concert.  they left to meet buzzy’s husband at a mexican restaurant and pigged out.  goodbear woke up the next morning second guessing her menu selection….

hope you like today’s bug shots!

and hope you have a nice friday!
