Met this dude on my back step this afternoon. So gorgeous.

After some nasty interactions with blister beetles in the past I’m glad to have the chance to appreciate them too.

I crouched down to watch his movements and details, appreciating the miracles and diversity of creation. There is always so much to discover and learn. When you can get this excited about a bug (I also called the kids to look and made a little video), then life is always interesting! Forever #grateful.




We later identified this one as:

Familia: Meloidae
Subfamilia: Nemognathinae
Tribus: Horiini
Genus: Cissites
Species: Cissites maculata
