Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Heads Down, The Darkling Beetle

Red Rock State Park, near Sedona Arizona, April 11, 2011.

Heads down, this action got my attention:

And, boys will be boys, Man just had to flip it over:

* A very quick Google search, first hit, fascinating page.

** No harm was done to this darkling beetle by the flipping, it quickly righted itself and we continued our hike.
