Circus of the Spineless #38

I am proud to host the May, 2009 edition of Circus of the Spineless! Truth be told, this is my first hosting gig, so here ‘goes!

The opening image is my play on the fact that Insects ruled the submissions this month. We had a lone Arachnid post, but it features great looks at several spiders.

I’ve been thinking about what it is about “bugs” that thrills some of us, and scares or grosses-out the rest. I think the child in all of us is captivated by their myriad forms, activities, and colors. I’ve seen kids glued to terrariums, or even better, to the flying-crawling-creatures right outside their doors. Somewhere along the way to adulthood, many people learn to fear what they do not know or do not understand.  Enter: Circus of the Spineless.

The monthly participants and readers of Circus of the Spineless provide a great service by sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with anyone who has access to the internet. Thanks to Kevin Zelnio for managing CotS and welcoming Birder’s Lounge as a host. And now…

In the spirit of observation and learning, please explore this lovely beetle to find the 8 links to our esteemed participants. (If this isn’t your idea of fun, you can zip straight to the bottom to get the “just the facts, ma’am” version. :-))
