Very Big, BIG, Beetle

We've been told that the beach below our motel in Campbell River is a favourite site for fossil hunters. With that in mind, when I saw this ...

... I was immediately convinced that it was a humongous fossilized beetle.

Well, not exactly convinced. Not really. Not even slightly. But I do have a good imagination.

The "head" is over a meter long. The antennae are longer still. The rock is just one of the great slabs of sandstone that cover the beach. The green fuzz on it is rockweed.

And don't forget; September 9th is Rock Flipping Day! Pass it on!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
