I was just testing out the interaction between blogger and flickr. Works great. I took this photo this past spring after waiting around in the front yard with my camera like a dork for this freakish thing to pop out of its shell. I read that they live underground for 80 years or so, feeding on tree roots. They dig their way out of the dirt, attach themselves to the bark of said tree, shed their nasty looking brown shell to reveal this shiny technicolor disco bug, then they mate, and then they die.
