Five Photos, Five Stories–Day Four

Five Photos, Five Stories–Day Four
also sharing with Weekly Photo Challenge–On the Way

Eyed Click Beetle

Upon exiting the hiking trail, we walked along the road on the way to our car. Hubby happened to look down and saw this Eyed Click Beetle. They are typically 1″  to 1-3/4″  inches (2.54-4.44 cm) in size. They fly in deciduous woodlands in spring and summer, and prey on wood-boring beetle larvae in decaying logs. When overturned, they can flip themselves into the air with an audible “click.” We kindly moved it out of the road to safety. 


Today, I nominate Dorothee Lang at Once Upon Each Day to post Five Photos, Five Stories.

The rules:  1) To post a photo a day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph. And 2) each day, nominate another blogger for the challenge.

  1. I’m glad you helped this fellow safely along his way. I’ve seen only one of these in real life. It’s amazing how big they are. It was on our front porch, so I took photos of it and then scooped it up and took it to the woods.


    1. This was a first for us, too. We have the small “snapping” bugs around the house. Occasionally, I bring one in with the mail after it found its way into the mailbox.
