A beetle from family Scarabaeidae is what I meant. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarabaeidae

Oh my goodness the June bugs are so thick here! They used to creep me out because their legs are so sticky. But now I love them :) Last year I was letting this one crawl around on me in my house because I am trying to get used to touching insects. Anyway, it was on the lamp and then we turned the lights out to watch TV and the next thing I knew... out of the darkness something alive hits me right in the head! Scared the crap out of me. We had to watch TV with the lights on after that. :)

I really like my digital camera I have, it is not an SLR but it has a 'super macro' mode. I went and bought and expensive digital SLR that I am not very good at using yet. :X But... it is very hard to focus on an insect or spider when there is only an automatic focus.

PS- I forgot to say thank to you Bugz because YOU are the one that heightened my interest in dung beetles with your awesome pictures/stories. You're awesome and where are you at?
