Look what I found near my door today... a horned beetle. So I got a piece of chopstick and carried the beetle on it out to my garden. I then got my camera and took several pictures.
I think the beetle must have been caught by our dogs. They usually bring to our door whatever they have been playing with. Sometimes I find bones, stones, pieces of rags, etc. They even brought a fish once...poor fish. The most "amazing" things they brought to our door however were... a paper plate together with plastic fork and spoon and a plastic glass... as if telling us that they came from a party! Ha ha.
Anyway... this beetle sure looks ferocious with its horn.
