Friday Beetle Blogging: Gazelle Scarab

Onthophagus gazella

Gazelle Scarab, Arizona

At my current rate of once-a-week Beetle Blogging, I'll need 10,000 years to cover every living species.

Wish me luck.

Hummmmm. I'm not sure if you and I will be around for another 10,000 years. Perhaps you should consider twice per week beetle posts and cut it down to 5,000.

Nice shot of the scarab.
