Beautiful dung beetles

Hello – have a lot to say about the dung beetles, but in response to the widespread belief that they are not attractive (given their dietary predilictions)…Here are some sketches of a few East African dung beetles – I’m sure that you will agree that they are gorgeous. And yes, all of these feed on and make use of dung. More on these remarkable creatures soon! dung-beetle-illustlr2.jpg dung-beetles-illustlr1.jpg

  1. Hello, I love looking at drawings of insects. The colors are brilliant. The dungs do pretty important work, so I guess they have to look good 😉
