An idiom we often use to describe someone who has a lot to do is ‘as busy as a bee’ but have you ever watched a beetle going about its everyday chores? They can be just as busy as bees.
With over 4000 species of beetle in Britain, it’s almost impossible to identify them with examining their genitals (!), so I haven’t even tried to put a name to this little one. I simply enjoyed watching the sun catch its glimmering carapace as it beetled busily along.
