This black longhorn flower beetle stood out on this wild pink rose.  Evidentally, from what I've read, longhorn beetles can live a very
long time but most have short life spans.  They eat flowers and other vegetarian stuff.  Longhorns (family
Cerambycidae) typically have
very long antennae and are not related to those big bulls with the amazingly wide horns you see in Texas.  © Carol Davis, 8-1-2008
