Dung beetle

We came across an area with quite of few of these dung beetles.
On checking them out I was sad to discover that they are on the decline due to pesticides and antibiotics used by farmers for their cattle as the beetles live off cow dung.
I hope these little fellas make it.

An impressive shot of this little chap. It's quite frightening to think of the damage that mankind has done to nature.

Gorgeous shot. I particularly like how you’ve captured the blue of his legs.
