Thoughtful Thursday


Behold the pear.  

No....it's a house. 

It's a pear house.  


Chock full of June Bugs.  


June Bugs that started flying out of said pear at record speed.  Hence, no more photos.  

Seven June Bugs flew out of that opening.  How they were all squeezed inside is beyond me. They must be really close friends.

  1. Never heard of June bugs but you are right, it must have been squashed in that tiny house.

  5. You have weird June bugs where you live. Ours are small and brown and live in the ground....eating the roots of our plants. I abhor them. One flew into my cousin's ear when we were young and they had to get a flashlight and shine it into his ear to get the nasty thing to fly back out. Loathe them....they are in the same category as worthless, nasty roaches....just good bird food....in my book!

    BUT, you were mighty brave taking such a close, good picture!!! And I agree with you....maybe they were having an early Labor Day party inside that poor pear!

  6. We call those japanese beetles! June bugs are entirely different...at least up here. Have to admit, the pear house is aesthetically beautiful! ha.

  10. I have a blogger friend named Janie Junebug, well, I guess that is her blogger name, but I have never seen a real June bug. Thanks for the education.

  12. Ha! We get those in our apples...yuck! We call them Mexican Beetles here...June bugs here are smaller brown ones that come in June and bounce around everywhere. Have a great day!!

  13. Oh yukie. Ours are brown also.

    Oh here they are so big.

    They come out a night especially if you leave a light on on porch or deck. They are attracted to light.

    They are sticky monsters. Apparently they say the feet are like a sticky syrup.

  16. Our June bugs are brown too - but I don't think I like either version. Really cool pictures though!

  17. Great photos, I think I would have been out of there too if seven of those things suddenly flew in my direction :) but they are fascinating little bugs.

  18. Great photos. A june bug flew into my hair at the farmer's market recently. The lady behind me just watched it until I noticed it and swatted it away and then said oh, you have a bug in your hair. REALLY??? xo Laura

  20. Our sand pears are ripe too and too often end up on the ground as food for the bugs. I hope to make some preserves this year. They're so delicious on toast.

  21. I would have left the area at record speed, as the June Bugs approached. Interesting house for them.
