Snug as a Bug in a Pub

My last day in England, Jenny and I were joined for a drink...

by this moocher.

Is this how he got in? We put him outside when we left.

Bugs are like life in the movie Jurassic Park. Bugs find a way.

It´s such a nice sequence of photos and a little tale with happy end, too.

Squish!

you were in England? cool, hope you had a good time

Lorenzo said...

You and Jenny must make for two very imposing pub bug-bouncers. Glad you mercifully did not apply TFE's "squish" solution.

I love that rose in the last picture! Not the bug. ;o)x

Is he drinking a gin & tonic?

England has different bugs! I like him, but thanks for showing him the door.

It's thirsty work being a bug.

I´m agree with Aleph, great sequence.

English Bugs Rule!

i found a beetle with pincers the size of dumbo ears in the store the other day...tried to find him a good home, but ended up dumping him in the bushes out front. cute bugger.

England is so small that every surface is shared by man and beast. My sister lives in the centre of a town but she has deer in her back garden!

he seems nice.

rode in on the flower? perhaps he's stalking you.

CC- Your comment reminds me of the unspeakably creepy story "How Love came to Professor Guildea" in the august derleth Anthology "Sleep No More".

Clowncar said...

haven't read it.

in truth it was just a dumb pun.

ArtSparker said...

CC=You might enjoy it. It is quite a wonderful anothology - I'm wondering if Charles knows of it. The illustrations are also wonderful(ly icky).

I love that you put that little 'moocher' outside when you left.

I think that's a larval ladybug, or ladybird if the creature is English.
