Nice spot Glenn! Did you spot it in QC or in Cavite? The map shows QC that's why I asked :)

Nice beetle Glenn! We have them too and for what I have heard we have all had some sort of relation with them during our childhood and it appears in our movies and pictures so they are quite important animals for us. Ancient egyptians considered beetles a symbol of good luck =)
