Himalayan Highlights 6. Beetles

There were masses of beetles ranging from a large, long-horn beetle, a weevil and a cockchafer at the Hidden Forest Retreat to various stag beetles attracted to the lights of the Guru Padmasambhava statue (some alive but most dead). A tiny cockchafer was caught in a web near the Temi Tea Plantation. A range of beetles were also spotted on plants throughout the area.
