All Creatures Great and Small

It is not uncommon to find our kids heads down and fingernails dirt brown looking for critters in nature.  One evening, Kalen and Brayden had rich findings in our front yard. They found a praying mantis, rhino beetle, cicada, and, of course, the toad. Kalen loved the rhino beetle, he took him in a bug catcher container out to eat with us.  I have to say, I never thought of a rhino beetle ever accompanying us to dinner.  With kids, expect the unexpected, right?

Later the beetle was put back on the tree and the rest of the critters were set free as well. It was a fun night of exploring these interesting critters.  I took a few pictures to share.
