Sunday Spinelessness – King of the castle

By David Winter 05/02/2012


A moment of life in the undergrowth captured (leaf beetles playing king of the castle?):

I don’t know exactly what was going on here, though I’ve got my ideas. Whatever I saw, it involved a lot of wild antennae-shaking from the two beetles facing each other and apparently very little interest in proceedings from the base of the “short, blunt beetle-pyramid“.

  • The larger individual on the bottom of the “castle” is a female. The other two are males jousting over her 🙂

  • Cheers TGIQ,

    I thought that might be what was going on, but didn’t want to present that idea without knowing it for sure. So thanks for the confirmation 😉
