Christmas Beetle Sighting

Possum is 5 years 7 months

Bandicoot is 3 years 4 months

Little Princess is 11 months

 

Yay!  At last!  DH has just walked in from the garage and said,

“You will be pleased to know that I have a Christmas Beetle in my hand.” 

I was feeding Little Princess, so there are no pics, but I am relieved.

Two years ago the Christmas Beetles arrived in October.  We had a bumper year of them.  The boys loved them, Bandicoot found out what their innards were like, and DH regularly gave Possum the horrors by telling him he would leave his bedroom window open so they could all come in.  We loved them, too.  (We also had lots of cicadas that year).

Last year, there were hardly any.

I was fearing this year would be another Beetle no-show.  Somehow, it just isn’t Advent without Christmas Beetles bumping about all night.
