The Jewel Beetle
For our nature studies we are reading from 'The wonderland of Nature' and this week the chapter was all about beetles. The children and I were quite captivated about this tiny little bug. We learnt that the Jewel Beetle (which I had never heard of before) often get mistaken in their Larvae stage as witchetty grubs.
I mean who would think that such an ugly grub would become such a splendor of brilliant colors?
Well it was only five minutes after we had finished reading that the children had found the above beetle outside of the place we are staying at.
Joshua was quick to say "I think this is a jewel beetle" and I was just awe struck..seriously!
You just never know what the wind will blow in, but I know who controls the wind!
