I’m Peeking Here!!!
I’ve lived in this state for 34 of my 35 years on this planet, and I have never seen one of these bigass motherfuckers until this one flew directly into my face last night when I went out to lock up the birds. It had an extremely hard shell casing and absolutely no morals.
It’s called a Predaceous Diving Beetle or “water tiger”
Very pretty lady…Look at her
– European stag beetle
A beetle came to visit tonight! My dad likes to say it’s our ancestors coming back to check on us. I think it’s an Aphimallon solstitiale, known as the summer chafer/European june beetle (according to Google Images) but I’m not sure! Does anybody know the correct species?
It’s that time of year.
Deep in the enchanting woods of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, fireflies perform their mesmerizing light show over a two-week period between mid-May to mid-June. Synchronous fireflies are among the 19 species found in the park. The fireflies sync up their flashing patterns, timing everything like a luminous dance number. They require an extremely dark environment to stay coordinated, and any light that enters the area throws off their whole performance. Their presence beckons to photographers and viewers alike, to explore the Appalachian forests of Tennessee and North Carolina after dark –with eyes peeled for flashing. This image is a combination of close to 100 photos with long exposure. What a magical place this world is, especially with these dazzling beetles. Photo courtesy of Jonathan Hoomes.
