Eastern Hercules Beetle

The first Eastern Hercules beetle I have ever seen in person. He was dead but is now a part of this growing menagerie.

This type of rhinoceros beetle will live as an adult only 3 to 6 months in the summer.

This may be the largest, or at the least a very grand tree that grows in my neighborhood.

Once some power workers from Houston who were here helping to restore power after one of our hurricanes marveled at this tree and said it was the biggest tree they had ever seen.

We are fortunate to have so many large tree friends here that watch over us.

We should be more aware and do all we can to help them.
