I have no idea where it went after I took these...fear of the unknown in my own backyard!

  1. We call these Popping Beetles. If you touch them, the just jump or "pop" a way any direction. A good protective trait to have. Great picture.

  5. Great insect! I think its a sort of Rove Beetle - the pop that other people mention is caused by a 'peg' that fits into a 'hole' between two parts of the body, when the peg pops out it make the beetle flick away! Cunning!

  7. Isn't he an ugly bug. I took a picture in my backyard a little while ago. I believe it was two lizards mating. Either that or the one was killing the other. I like to think it was the first.
