That's full-on. And my rhino beetle was behind glass! His bite would be very painful I suspect. I read they are the most powerful creatures in the world per body size - they can lift 85 times their own weight!!

Nice pic Clint, you have so much interesting to shoot where you live.

That's just plain old USA bug stuff. You live where the "interesting" things are. Where else is there a creature that lays eggs, has a leathery set of lips that look like a duck bill, flat tail, swims like an otter and has poison claws and eats worm and crayfish??

I find them every now and then around some of the old logs we have. This one was dead when I found him. You may have noticed the the super glue holding him to the piece of wood. Now I have my own super beetle. He looks a bit board.

If it was already dead, why did you have to use glue at all? The glue is a distraction in an otherwise good, neat photograph.

Probably because it's mounted vertically, next to the moose head

Well, that's because he's stuck in a rot.

He's a bit dusty from hanging on the wall in my basement shop area.
