Transparent chitin--well, I never...
Ray: Strange critter, eh!
Drôle de petite bête.
Ray: Un petit scarabée très étrange, Martine.

What a strange insect!
Ray: One of the oddest insects I have seen in the garden, Philine...it seems to like eating the leaves of the sweet potato plant.

There's got to be a reason for this beyond intriguing us, but I wonder what nature provided it with this for?
Ray: It has me scratching my head, Ole Fruit!
Il est très beau ainsi vetu ,
Je ne le connaisais pas
Merci Ray
Ray: J'ai vu quelques spécimens, Claudine, mais je n'ai pas réussi à les identifier.

Perhaps its some sort of toxic forcefield. Anything touching it results in an agonising death.
Ray: Could be that, Alan...in which case it is a good thing I did not prod it. smile

Made-to-measure rain-gear, Ray

How unusual.
Safety glasses are a very good idea when traveling through dusty areas.
How very curious!
Wow! How cool!
