I am embarrassed to say when I saw this lovely insect moving along the Forest floor my first thought was “Oh it looks like a drunken Bumble Bee”. Thankfully when I got home it became clear when viewing the photographs on my computer it was a wonderful Beetle”. After combing through the Google links/images for “furry beetle”, “fuzzy beetle” and “Arkansas Beetle” I spotted an image associated with a blog called “What’s That Bug?“. Their site provided the following information “This Scarab is a Bumble Flower Beetle, Euphoria inda”. Nature is the best classroom at any age, there is something new to learn during/after each hike!
Love to ALL!
