Velvet ants have the nickname cow killer, A.K.

I've seen cicada killers before, but never a velvet ant.

I do not know what that beetle is. I couldn't tell if those little wing remnants were the result of getting chewed, or if that's the way they're supposed to look.

But he/she/it/beetle was resolutely trucking across the sand, leaving beetle prints in its wake.

So, "wasp" is the plural of "wasp?"

And now we have photographic proof that the earth is six thousand yrs. old.

I always wonder what the fuck they can have to do, that is so important.
