A handful of beetle

I've been out flipping rocks, and came home with a stack of photos to process. Here's the first of the lot.

All out of breath.

Could that beetle ever run! I chased him and chased him and chased him through piled dead leaves and old sticks, caught him and lost him and caught him again. Then when I finally had him, he must have figured he was safe in my hand, and just sat there while I aimed the camera at him, one-handed.

The rest of the photos and story will be along presently.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

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!
