Other children bring their mommies flowers, mine bring me bugs
Isn't that sweet? :-)

My kids are so happy when they find a cool bug for mommy to photograph. My oldest daughter brought this great beetle home from school for me - in one of her lunch containers. She found it actually inside the classroom, so I'm not sure what his preferred habitat is. He wasn't the most cooperative subject, constantly on the move. Close to 2cm (.75 inches) in length. After his photo session we released him.

Photographed in Heredia, Costa Rica | April 2011.
