When my son was little he adored bugs. For him, moving to Texas was like taking up residence in an exotic zoo. Every day there was an encounter with something new to put in his bug box and study. There is so much variety in the shapes, colors and textures that insects come in, I admit to being fascinated too.
This bee looks so velvety and soft, I want to pet it.
I love the metallic jewel like sheen of beetles. One Christmas, I gave my little sister a gorgeous colorful beetle carapace that had been turned into a pin. I thought it was a cool and original gift. Evidently she did not have the same appreciation and was slightly repulsed, lol. I would have worn it. It just shows, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
