An alien comes to visit

Green June Beetle
   We decided to grill out for supper, and J-man was being the "helper," bringing Daddy a clean plate when he came running back in the house calling for me to come see this "huge green bug."  We always seem to get the most interesting visitors on our back porch.  After the brothers came to see him too, everyone bravely let the little alien crawl on their fingers before taking him to the edge of the woods so he wouldn't accidentally get stepped on.  The thing they found most fascinating and wonderful about him was the shiny metallic green on his face, legs, and underside.  Can you see his beauty, too?

So cool! We get what we cal "June bugs" around here, but they're all brown. This guy was really cool-looking! Thanks for sharing!

He is pretty cool looking but I don't think my girls or myself would have dared to touch it - defintely not brave enough! :)
