A beetle dropped in to visit today. I found her* on my kitchen floor, very sleepy. I took her outside and gave her a drink, and she woke up and found a little friend.
|Ground beetle and a friendly red spider mite.|
|Looks like she may have a mite on her back, too.|
|Side view, on wet painted board.|
* I think she's a female because of the shape of her feet:
|Front and rear feet. The males have wider and hairier feet. "The better to grab you with, my dear."|
