Where do beetles hang out when they are not eating my cucumbers?
Apparently, in the squash flowers.
I was poking around in the garden Thursday night after work, and noticed this little guy trying to camouflage itself down inside a blossom. I wouldn’t think it would be their usual fare, but perhaps this little guy just wanted a place to relax for awhile. After all, it’s not easy being…yellow.
The photo quality? Well, the light was getting low. And this little pest thought less of me than Britney Spears thinks of the paparazzi. Within seconds of the approach of my lens, he scrambled up the petal and took a header into the dirt below, then flew away.
I’m guessing there were cucumber blossoms to gnaw on, anyway.
