Blister Bug Season?

Sharon just came into the office talking about an interesting blue bug. I thought it might be a blister beetle like the one we saw last year, and sure enough it was. I was surprised that it was a year ago, minus 12 days. This must be their season.

It's a very pretty bug; were both the same size? Because the one outside today was quite small. I am suprised Sharon noticed it.

I assume you did not eat _this_ bliser bug, either.

This one was about 2/3 the size of the one I saw last year. Maybe they are bigger in mid-October. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Patti, I have no desire to consume a urinary-tract irritant. But based on my previous behavior with foodstuffs, I don't blame you for the uncertainty.
