Arthropod Issues: Part Three.

Much commotion in the breakfast nook this morning. "Dad! Jumpy is eating a queen ant, and is being chased by a beetle!"

What excitement. I think the beetle was just trying to find a way out, having blundered in the open kitchen door.

It's some sort of longhorn flower beetle, which I doubt had any interest in Jumpy or her breakfast.

It got too close though, and Jumpy jumped backwards-zot! It's amazing how they can do that, on a smooth, vertical surface no less.
