It must be Christmas

I rescued a Christmas Beetle from a bucket of water today.

He didn’t want to stick around to have his photo taken.

He looked like this:


*Merry Christmas everyone*

    I love Christmas beetles- there were so many of them every summer when we were kids but now…… Sadly so few
    Even in the country

    We have seen SO MANY Christmas beetles this year…I guess they are all Christmassing in Tasmania ;). Earl and I went for a walk after our Christmas lunch down to the jetty and as Earl was having a bit of a splash off the boat launch I found a Christmas beetle wallowing in the water. I picked him up and let him loose on a friends garden just opposite the boat launch…hey…they were away…what do they care if he eats a bit of their garden eh? 😉 See you soon 🙂
