I posted once or twice about this green and orange beetle that I see in the marsh. He's about one inch long and 3/4 wide. This has been ongoing for nearly three years. One day I saw this beetle, ducked into a hole, and from time to time I see them. Indeed there's a veritable colony of them.

Well I finally got a photograph. Odd. It doesn't look like a beetle. The mind plays its tricks. That first half glimpse, and I saw a beetle. And from them on, that's all I saw...

It seems they run sideways, with that big claw pressed to their sides...

Now, I say in advance to Geoff and Jake - Don't touch it, it's only an eight foot pole. :lol:

Interesting picture, but when I read your title, I thought it was a picture of my sister!

In all honesty, I have never felt so stupid in my life - and as you would probably be the first to admit, that is saying something! Three YEARS, I've been talking about this beetle!

Well, the next time I feel bad about something I've done I'll remember Dave and the Crab. That'll be a real recouperator. 8)
