Beetle Buddies

My husband noticed this cozy group of beetles this morning on our walk. Upon further investigation they appear to be a species of metallic wood-boring beetle.

They are rather beautiful.

“Every blade of grass, every insect, ant, and golden bee, all so amazingly know their path, though they have not intelligence, they bear witness to the mystery of God and continually accomplish it themselves.”
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
