big green beetle

For a few weeks we had these beautiful florescent-green beetles in our backyard. I won't touch them, but Taylor sure would.




videoWhen I was a little girl, my brothers and I would catch beetles, tie strings to their legs, and fly them around. I think it's cruel, but Spencer let Taylor fly it on its "leash" for a few minutes and then I had to persuade Taylor to let it go.

We are so weird, I know.

It amazes me how un-scared your kids are of animals and bugs. I wish my kids were like that, but they don't like the wildlife! Not even Chandler!
