More Fun Than a State Fair

Honestly, whirligig beetles are even more fun than the bumper boats and cars I loved at the state fair when I was a child. I can stand on the lake bank and watch these little guys bunch up (they're quite social) and part, suddenly exploding like firework bursts. Imagine moving this fast, looking up and looking down simultaneously, only to come to a complete sudden halt without seeming effort.

Everything in the natural world delights me, even the carcass of a Fragile Forktail found in the same spot where I watched many mate just last week. It's just the way things are.
