little pet

Over the weekend we found this old June Bug.
cotinis mutabilis - june bug - figeater beetle

It was on it's last legs,
something happened to it's wing,
and it was just about ready to get smashed on the bricks.
The kids gave it some water on a paper towel,
and now it's been 4 days.
I'll admit it's one of the most mesmerizing things to watch.

This is about as close as the kids have to a pet for the time being.

Now at least I know where the kids are,
either riding scooters or bikes in the alley,
or hanging out on the porch,
with the june bug.
