Hi Grin

Saw these little critters in the garden, not sure if I should use the 'Adult' tag for this image haha Not one of my best macros, but the wind didn't help at all. But I wanted to upload something as I wanted to add a link to share with you all. I came across the link in the EPZ forums the other day (sorry, can't remember who posted it), so some of you may have seen it already, but for those who haven't I hope it makes you chuckle Grin Oh and please don't let the words 'blow-job' put anyone off...it truly isn't what you think Wink

Couldn't work out which one was you, Kaleena Grin. I'm not sure my wife's hairdryer is strong enough for this effect either.

I like your beetles. Your lillies won't though, the red lilly beetle will cause a lot of damage. I know, because I actually took one on my lilly yesterday, thought it looked good then googled it!!

Sorry Dave...I noticed an annoying blob on the image, so removed it and uploaded it again Smile Hmmmmm a lily beetle, thanks for the heads up, I shall go and ask them to politely vacate from my garden. Do they destroy snakes head frittilary too? As that's what they were climbing all over. Smile

Lovely image, but if you have lilies in the garden watch out for the grub larvae, they look like small brown bird dropping and munch you lilies in no time leaving a horrible mess.

Ooo...gorgeous beetles, K!!! Just read Dave's comment and it's a pity these beauts are so damagous!

Great shot of them, though Smile

Checked out the link and it's ammmaaazing. Thanks for sharing it with us! So weird, isn't it, how the same effect can produce pics which are funny...scary...dopey...etc. Quite a range Grin
