Dragonfly

I walked out the front door the other day and nearly stepped on a freshly deceased dragonfly. Lucky! I popped back in to get the camera.

Look at its eyes. Aren’t they amazing?

And a different insect I found last week. It’s called “アカガネサルハムシ” in japanese. Google tells me “Red Gane monkey beetle” in english. Proper classification Acrothinium gaschkevitchii. It scared easily and was off before I could get a shot in focus.
