This here bug, I am recently informed, is a rarity in the Chircahua Mountains where I found her. She’s called the sunburst diving beetle. These predators like to eat mosquito larvae. Most astounding is they are the only known organism in the entire animal kingdom with two lenses in each eye allowing for precise near and far vision. It makes them excellent hunters. Wish I had me some of that. Thanks for naming it for me Shane Burchfield. Shane tells me it is also his favorite bug in the world. Shane owns a company called Bugs of America so that’s saying something.
