Small Insect


I am jumping on the insect bandwagon for this week's Illustration Friday topic which is SMALL. I might be thinking back to the A.A.Milne poem about a beetle in a matchbox named Small. But mostly I'm celebrating the new David Attenborough TV series Life in the Undergrowth. The largest beetle in the world will be on tonight! Not sure if it will still count as being small.

Great idea. Everybody should have a variety of beetles at hand! I'm an insect lover myself. I'll be watching for that series to show up on my local PBS station. Thanks for the tip!

Nice beetle! My husband got me to keep some HUGE grubs I found in my flower pots because he'd identified them as a particular beetle grub... these grubs looked a lot bigger to me than the beetles they are meant to be... Imagine how big the grub for this beetle would be... so you see you have to use Rabbit's relative Small as the excuse... (I think the one in the matchbox was Alexander not small.... okay you can shoot me now...)

Thanks Val.

Cindy, hope it gets 'round to you soon.

I stand corrected Caroline - presumably Rabbit's relative has to be another rabbit? Talking of huge grubs, I just had a vision of the Jon Pertwee Dr Who tussling with the Green Death.
