Last week this little guy tried to help The Girl with her Prince of Persia game. She trapped him under an ashtray and kept on a-playin'.
About a half-hour later I went downstairs to see what provoked the latest ear-shattering obscenity stream and furious pounding/smashing. I saw the ashtray on the floor, picked it up, came face-to-face with this agitated razor-pronged beastie, and yelped like a kicked puppy. The Girl paused her game to laugh at me.
So, I did the one thing I could to restore my magnificent masculinity - I gingerly picked up the beetle, named him Mr. Pincers, grabbed my camera, arranged some props, set up some external lighting, and gave him a super-fabulous photo shoot.
I just got around to throwing up his Glamour Shotz on my Flickr page, along with the Cupboard Pope and some other random photos. Check 'em out.
