New moon scarab sighting!

The Green June Beetle (Cotinis nitida) has felt like a spirit animal
from way back, a messenger of transformation, crossroads.

I’ve never seen one this close—they have amazing antler antennae!
The interwebs says the plates at the ends are called lamellae,
and can be compressed or fanned out like leaves to sense scent.

This new friend was almost as busy as I was yesterday, traversing freshly laid mulch,
garden stones, my tired arms, and finally flying from my fingertips up into the trees.

Should it resonate, accept this critter as a calling to your own quest…
