As I walked along I noticed a beetle at a Gracie poop. Certainly I could spare a minute to watch it. Well, a minute and six seconds worth of video.

A view from above of the Dung Beetle (Dichotomius carolinus)! A hole was next to a poop, however it was moving away from that. So what was it up too? Why didn’t it just fly to the next pile?

You may ask the same question as you watch it move along in the jungle of grass. Then it reaches the next pile. It seemed it only wanted to be the king/queen of the hill for a moment as it moved off.

  1. All that effort just to stretch its wings for a moment? It had some other purpose in mind I guess. Interesting article about Hudsonian godwits- not a bird I’ve ever seen to my knowledge.

  2. It was certainly interesting, when it had wings, why would seemly go up and down the dead end grasses. Like Suzanne said, it must have had some other purpose.
