Begin Year V

I can't believe that it's the anniversary of this blog again (well, it will be in about an hour), and that I've been at it for 4 years. To celebrate, I'm posting pictures of two beautiful beetles that I photographed in Arizona a couple of weeks ago.


Chrysina gloriosa

Chrysina beyeri
You gotta love a beetle with purple legs

Both of these beetles were attracted to the lights around my cabin in Madera Canyon/ They were still on the tree when I got up the next morning.

I love these beetles. Maybe you can ID the beetles on my next blog post, including what I thought must be a Chrysina.

Congrats!
And isn't Madera special?

I just got to your blog via a comment you made at Ted's blog about Willcox Playa. We were just there, not the best array of Tigers ever, but still a great day - we'll go back for more soon, it's still raining a lot. http://arizonabeetlesbugsbirdsandmore.blogspot.com/2010/08/nothing-is-what-it-seems-at-willcox.html
