When I lived in Japan I was introduced to the local beetles, giant rhinoceros and stag beetles like we never, ever saw in Canada. They’re awesome, and I was delighted to find they existed in Australia. Every christmas they emerge from the ground and fly towards the brightest lights in search of mates. They’re a lot like people in that respect. 😉
Anyway, this season my nephew was in town and we set out to find some beetles. We found lots, but this guy was the monster of the bunch, much larger than the rest, and super happy to have his photo taken.
