Beetle-Browed

On Friday night our neighbors had noticed this incredibly weird beetle outside. It had black and yellow stripes running lengthwise down its back, and it had multi-tiered feathery antenna. I went back in the house, and then a minute later decided I wanted a picture of it. When I went back out, our neighbor had tossed it out into the yard, and I couldn’t find it to take a picture.

So now I’m dying to find out what kind of beetle it was, which is no small task. Apparently there are 350,000 known species of beetles, with an estimate of millions of different species.


[It looks like it was probably the Colorado potato beetle, although the antenna still looked different. But here’s a picture of the most likely suspect.]

I just had to post that spam comment, because it was the most polite one I have ever received.
