Ode to the Exquisite Harlequin Beetle

A deep love of nature is at the core of my being. Nothing brings me to a state of reverence like nature. [Sorry to get all poignant on you, but it happens to be true.] All that man creates, in a sense, pales beside the grandeur that is nature. But then again, perhaps, in striving towards its magnificence we blunder into our own. 

See pictures and a slideshow with music of my beloved harlequin beetles on my website, and nerdilly enough, a slideshow of the native hibiscus upon which they dwell.
