Artist's Description

Dung beetles are beetles that feed partly or exclusively on feces. Many dung beetles, known as rollers, roll dung into round balls, which are used as a food source or brooding chambers. Dung beetles are currently the only insect known to navigate and orient themselves using the Milky Way. When they loose their way they climb on top of the dung ball and re-orient themselves….Pezulu Lodge South Africa Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Oct. 2013
