Where the Beetles Were

Obviously, the following pictures were taken at different times, when I was walking a loop around the back part of our yard.

The limb had fallen from a large mapleĀ tree in a strong storm a few years ago.

BarkĀ beetles tunneled their homes under the bark.

Most of the tunneling I’ve seen like this weren’t anywhere near as large as these.

Obviously, I take a picture every now and then when walking by this broken limb. This picture shows how they grew. The design always catches my attention, especially if the sun’s shining.
