Or a hug! (I hear laughter works, too, I might have to try it someday!) To my family and friends, you are the stars in the vast, dark world in which I reside; like the sparkling tiny points on the back of a Japanese beetle, keep shining!
(Of Insecta note, these are our first Coleopterans (or beetles, for the less latinate-using-inclined) on Bugphoto.net! I tend to have a bias against the beetles, perhaps, because I have difficulty getting artful shots of them. Hopefully we can arrange a better working relationship in the future. For the gardeners out there, I apologize somewhat, but of the beetles, I’ve found the JB’s are not only better at consuming vegetation but also better at posing for my camera.)
