    Great perspective.  Well exposed considering the backlighting.

      Taken with the old Panasonic. We usually only see these "figeater beatlles"  in fig trees eating ripe figs. Guess they like agave flowers too.   They pile onto the figs in such numbers that they eventually fall to the ground with pieces of fig in large globs  with an eerie clatter. Pretty amusing. Also known here as "june bugs".
