Beauty specimen and shots.
What a neat little critter; looks like it's wearing a collar! Beautiful images!!
Rest assured I am no Xenophobe, but I have a question integral to this discussion. Pray tell, who is this stranger, if I may ask?? What a nice find!!
I love it!
A question I realized I should have asked after my response, Denis!!
As one who has observed this beauty in life, I find your posting eXtremely interesting.
Hmmm, see a hint in your post, Stu!
O, Just tell us what it is, E. I don't have the patience with People who Post Obscure Puzzles and I can't be bothereD to look up obscure literary references. Harrrumph!
Lost me on that one. :-P
Actually, E, there was nothing there to figure out. That's how deviously intelligent I am. OR, I could have made up something, but only thought of it later. ;-)
Looks like a Wood Borer, I see this from time to time.
I think I'll include answer links in the posts from now on...
Congrats to all that got it. :-)
Chinese poet Xi Xi = clue to initials; Xylotrechus integer
"...treacherous xylophone with a counting problem..." = sad attempt at breaking the scientific name into some sort of clues
I'll do better next time. :-P
