|Doesn't he look friendly?|
|What happens when I try to pet him?|
|He didn't like that very much.|
Check out the mandibles on this guy! And this is not even one of the biggest we have seen here.
In addition to being scary and red, he is also very strong! I tried to pick him up off the sidewalk and place him on a tree. It was as if he was glued to the concrete! I have heard that Goliath beetles are one of the strongest insects by size. I'm not sure how they compare to fleas or ants, but I have seen them hang on to bricks while people picked them up. Impressive for such a "small" creature.
|I can see the resemblance.|
|And origami Frog at Tee's|
|And a Wolf...|
|Couple of dragon flies.|
|Ok, I might have gotten carried away....|
|A few more things.|
|Maybe I should eat instead of fold..|
|Talk about relaxed.|
So that is that. It is ridiculously hot today. Humid, sunny, terrible! Even the Rabbits are taking a break from the heat by camping out in the cool part of the driveway.
|Long run....sometime this week.|
|Made possibly better with water. Lots of water!|
Cheryl's run was simply a token run as she prepares for her long run this week. It is supposed to be hot every day this week. We shall see how things work out. This time, we will bring water, Popsicles, and maybe even a water theme park! ( Only if we run in Muscatine.)
