Beetle & grubs
|[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe|
|Ah! The things you find when you do a little yard work!|
Beetles are the group of insects with the largest number of known species. They are classified in the order Coleoptera (pronounced /ˌkoʊliˈɒptərə/; from Greek κολεός, koleos, "sheath"; and πτερόν, pteron, "wing", thus "sheathed wing"), which contains more described species than in any other order in the animal kingdom, constituting about 25% of all known life-forms. 40% of all described insect species are beetles (about 350,000 species), and new species are frequently discovered. Estimates put the total number of species, described and undescribed, at between 5 and 8 million. [wikipedia]
As an aside, when I was at Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA, the most popular eatery was a place called GRUBBS DINER. Mmm... what an image.

Actually Grubbs, grass hoppers and caterpillars are staple diet for disadvantaged South Africans.
