While exiting the back door we came across Edgar.
He was about the length of our pinky fingers.
We couldn't decided what made Edgar cooler.
Was it his awesome looking horn?
Was it the amazing tiny upside down Mohawk of bright orange fur...
Was it his adorable little face?
Finally we decided it was the whole package.
Hercules/Rhinoceros beetles are by far and away our favorite insect to take photos of.
They are docile, harmless, and are kept as pets in many countries the world over.
Plus look at that face. What's not to love?
What a beautiful day to be outside.
