ハンミョウ Japanese Tiger Beetle
Exactly one year ago today, I saw a Japanese tiger beetle for the first time. But recently I haven't seen any. I always see them around the same place. I wonder why there haven't been any there recently. There are a lot more frogs than usual in that area this year. I wonder if they ate the Japanese tiger beetles. However, they are really fast. There are also a lot of huge dragonflies there this year too. Today, I saw a dragonfly catch another insect that had just taken off mid-air and eat it. I wonder if the Japanese tiger beetles were eaten by the dragonflies. Just when I was thinking today was no good too, I saw one. Yes! I took my time and observed it. I'm pretty happy with today's results.
I managed to get a video of the Japanese tiger beetles too. It appeared that a lot of little insects were attracted to it. And it seemed to me that it was eating those little insects. Have a look for yourself.
To wrap things up, I finally found a Japanese tiger beetle and observed it.
Next time I want to catch one and use it for kindergarten boy's English study.
Can practice colors and words like beautiful, ugly, fast, and so on, with it.
