Found dead in the garden
G wants to know if it had food in its mouth, or if the light area is mouth parts. ?! It was a gorgeous color: dark flashy iridescent blue. Our hoards of tiny black ants were already trying to figure out how to chop it up and haul it off when I found it. I moved it several kingdoms away (from the garden to the comfort of my chair in the shade). Eventually it blew off the table, so some new ant fiefdom doubtless claimed it as a meal for their masses.
