I was a busy person too--clearing garden paths and weeding here and there. I wasn't having as much fun as the beetles, but a couple hours of crawling around in the garden is very sweet. That's the tip of my fingernail in the top corner. Gives you an idea of the size of the bugs. It was the red that caught my eye. Doesn't seem like very good camouflage. I started sneezing and coughing before I even finished up for the day; it's a pretty dramatic connection--gardening=allergic reaction. Phooey.
