I remember that my cousins and I used to
collect these bugs when we were kids.
We had small boxes with lids that we made holes in.
And we used to see who could get most ;)
Now my kids do the same.
These particular bugs are easy to gather as
they get together on the leavs on docks and sorrels
were they lay eggs.
We call them "gullsmed" (goldsmith)
because of the shiny color.
But Eirin insist to call them wishbeetle,
something she has learned in kindergarden
so I guess there are several local "names" on these ;)
But there is so many other bugs and beetles
to collect too.
My kids loves spiders!
I'm not afraid of them, but I don't like them
so I try not to let my kids see my loathe.
And they are thrilled when they find a ladybug :)
