This MY umbrella!

Shot this video just for Jay Dedman, who likes bugs. While I was at the Transmission Asia-Pacific conference in Indonesia, this big beetle decided he wanted his own umbrella after a brief bout of rain (it’s supposed to be the dry season after all). Excuse the quality – iPhones aren’t good at closeups.

    What a bug! Did you get any other wonderful things from Indonesia?

    When I lived in Japan I found one of those outside my apartment. My first reaction was “fuck!”, my second “FUCK!”, them “arrrgggghhh,” and finally “…cool!” Kids in Japan keep this type of beetle as pets. I wonder what English kids would say if you presented them with a hugh beetle instead of a hamster.

    huge, not hugh. Obviously.
