It's round-up time in bugland,
'cause here comes the 'Cowboy Beetle'

This fella couldn't sit still for a moment - it was very tricky to get a photo!
The Cowboy beetle is one of the flower beetles and spends his day foraging amongst the flowers eating pollen.

Cheerio for now,
I hope you liked today's post.

Little Gold Beetle

I found this little Scarab beetle the other day. It looks a bit like our usual gold christmas beetle, but slightly different. This one is slightly smaller and has light blotches/spots.

It was a bit tricky to get a good photo of it because it was so shiny....
We don't seem to get as many christmas beetles as we used to.......
We have seen a few of the light green ones recently - they are attracted to the house lights at night.
I hope to see some more this year.
Do you get chrismas beetles?
