Wordless Wednesday

How rude! I just wasn't prepared for that whilst I was munching my chocolate olivers and slurping tea...

Nice shot ;o)

As you may have read before, HappyMouffetard was unhappy that I didn't kill them after photographing them:
... it just seemed wrong!

I think they're a fabulous colour, it was dark where they were "doing their business", so I had to set the aperture on the camera very wide, which means the depth of field is not as deep as I'd want: Some of their legs and antennae are out of focus.

I love their colour, beetles are such marvelous creatures. You picked up some really nice detail on their elytra too.

I'm not sure I could have killed them either, but then I don't have lilies that have been munched! Although I did once go on an angry rampage whacking slugs with a large stick. I won't be doing it again. It took me ages to wash the splash back out of my hair :o(

There's physics in beetles too, very white beetles:

I was impressed by the colouration of the Darwin beetles on BBC1 Life this week, but I thought they could do with some work on their social skills.
