There’s a rhino in my shoe
bore you tell you about the incident with the rhino in my shoe, I have to give a big shout out to Sheila Hurst for her wonderful review of my novel The Everything Theory. We spend a lot of time and love on our stories and it’s awesome when others read them and love them too. Thank you, Sheila! 😀
…now back to the rhino in my shoe….
I was happily getting ready to do some gardening last week until I went to put my foot in my gardening shoe.
I haven’t seen one of these beauties in a long time.
WARNING: Big Beetle (don’t worry – they’re completely harmless)
I looked after the
beast cute little fella for a couple of days because he looked like he had been in a fight with another male. The males try to throw each other out of the trees by using those enormous pincers on their heads. One day I might get a video of the battle. But in the meantime this guy needed a bit of TLC. I named him Lonely Luke, nursed him back to health and put him in a safe tree where he is still sitting. Hopefully, he will win his next battle and with it the heart of the lady rhino beetle whose honor he fought so valiantly to defend.
When I finally got into the garden after my beetle nursing responsibilities. I saw the bees on the sunflowers. I knew you’d want to see this awesome sight too, so I took a snap.
It’s full size here because it’s a little more attractive and easier on the eye than Lonely Luke.
Below are my two attempts for my ***Arty Bits*** this week.
The first one is called In The Deep
…and the second one is Sunflower (of course!)
I was intrigued when I zoomed in on the sunflower and saw it was full of miniature flowers with stamens. Click on the picture and take a better look if you have the time.
xxx Have a happy, sunshiny, singing, dancing week! xxx
