We were attacked!!!


Went camping this weekend. Just my partner, our baby (Ella), and myself. Oh, and then during the eve while relaxing by fire we were invaded by another who crashed our party.

This is a Hercules Beetle that dwell in New Mexico and Arizona, or so I've briefly read about. It's a D. Ganti, which is latin for really freakin' big ass beetle. It's eyes glowed orange in the light. I'll post some actual pictures when I get the chance. The horns weren't as developed on our visitor but it was definitely the same family and evidently is quite friendly. They are known to be the most gentle and handleable of all the beetle family of this size...yea, thanks but no, I'll pass.

Dog kept wanting to visit but I finally scooted it away from the site and let it on its way.

Oh yea, gotta love the outdoors - going back out with the kids in another month. We'll see if he's still out a bout.
