Soldier Beetle

Today is Liberation Day, the day we celebrate the end of the Second World War and our freedom. This orange-colored Soldier Beetle made me think about that time, 65 years ago. He was sitting here, on top of his world, looking out over the grass edge he was in. Unfortunately for me did he not use his freedom to fly away, that would have made an even better shot.
