I'm Lovin' It!

On the way to BugSwarm 2012 stopped at McDonald's in Grenada, Mississippi. This huge fella was right there on the wall next to the main entrance door, where people were continuously going in & out. Didn't phase him. So I had to get the pic.

No record of this species for Mississippi, so there is now!

Keep lovin' it!
I'm lovin' everything here, except the thought that people who study the natural world can justify eating at McDonalds!

Nice Photo!
