Anyone still reading these? I am trying to figure out what to do with this site, the hacking attempts on this site haven’t decreased much. I continue to keep it locked down, but I don’t believe I am going to be able to keep it as a WordPress site much longer if I am going to keep it around. Well anyway how about a bug for a change of pace ? In the past year I have become much more interested in beetles. I found this Hide Beetle in the yard and brought it into a white box for photography. A white box is simply a box lined with white paper, a flash is either placed into the box or in my case inserted through a hole in the top of the box. This allows you to isolate something onto a white background. I was trying to highlight the structure of the wings and how the elytra open to allow the wings to deploy for flight. Just below is an image of the beetle with its wings all tucked in. Click through for a better image. I put up low resolution images to left.
