Mr Beetle. He was big and black. He looked a lot like this Calosoma semilaeve. He was drowning in a canyon in Northern Italy. The banks were too steep for him to escape. My son and I carried him down the canyon, passing him off, or flinging him over drop offs to the other waiting below. Save Mr Beetle! (Ex) husband was getting very PO'd. But we finished the canyon with Mr Beetle, and set him on dry ground.
