    A Christmas Beetle? That’s a new one on me, Claudette. A great name for an insect. Very refreshing photos for the festive season.

    Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you. Thank you for all the support you have given me and my blog this year.

    Season greetings.
    Hugh 🎅

      Hi Hugh, not sure what it’s real name is, but that’s what we call them as they start to arrive at this time of the year (and the have lovely metallic shimmery colours). This one appears to have very elongated chompers and is dull – so maybe he is a boy 😉
      Happy Christmas to you and yours, thanks for being part of my blogging world.

    The soft fur of those leaves makes me want to reach in and caress them, the beetle makes me want to shine his back even brighter and the water …. well water always makes me want to disturb it further by sploshing in!

      Glad my photos give you some good feelings Osyth. Water always makes me want to splosh too.

    Lovely Claudette. My favourite is the grass and water. I didn’t know about the Christmas beetle either.

      Thanks Ruth – took that grass and water shot before I met you for coffee last week, down on the foreshore at Franklin.

      I’m a bit worried about the mandibles – they look like they could gnaw legs off 🙂
