From the Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs:

"Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum. And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on; While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on."
[1872 Augustus De morgan, Budget of Paradoxes 377]

Nice find (but not for the beetle).

How unusual. Did you notice the mites on the beetle before seeing it on your computer screen?

I saw it when I opened the file. Many of my close up pictures have these "bonus insects". They always bring pleasant surprises
