Chauliognathus lugubris

Plague Soldier Beetle


Tags / Aspects


This Plague Soldier beetle looked like it was performing gymnastics. Maybe it had an itch - I have no idea why it was twisting its body and legs in all directions, but it was doing it for long enough for me to take at least a dozen photos before it flew away. It is on a Stenanthemom scortechini bush.
