Gaborone game reserve, Botswana 2015
During the wet season in Botswana there is a scurry of activity as the smaller insects make use of the soft soil. Dung beetles are out in force, searching for and moulding dung into perfect spheres. Some are storing food, others like these tiny green Dung Beetles (Gymnopleurus humanus) creating a safe place for their young. As they move their prize, even miniscule stones seem like massive obstacles to cross.
