Side View of a Prionus Root Borer Beetle
Look at the luxurious fur coat underneath this beetle! Isn't it pretty?!! It's very hard to see this hair just by looking--it appears to be velvety instead. I wonder it it is soft or bristley? I wasn't about to touch this guy--it was not too happy about getting flashed by my strobes, and I didn't want to stress it out even more. And well, do you think I would be brave enough to touch this guy?!! ARE YOU KIDDING?!!! :D :D This thing looks like it's straight out of a 50's monster movie!! :D :D
