The Milkman

By ChiliMan
Helloooo, people Smile

Bah…I just couldn't settle down to some good EPZing this week. I tried catching up on pics but only managed in blibs and blobs...and I just couldn't bring myself to upload without having caught up first.

Now that I'm up to speed, here's something for Saturday: the same beetle which featured in the last Silly Sunday upload.

I noticed its shadow later on and decided the critter should take centrestage today Smile

Andrew

EDIT: My initial title was gonna be "The Milkman" 'cos of FeFe's comment the previous Sunday. Later on I came up with 'Critterus shadowii'. I'm gonna revert to my original title of "The Milkman" Smile

You ain't the only one mate, too busy packing for the impending house move and what with Xmas just around the corner that's just complicating matters all the more...

Good find here though Andy....

His antennae ARE pretty cool, aren't they?? I thought they look like flexible saws Grin
