#30DaysWild – Day 3 – Red-headed cardinal beetle

My wild moment of the day occurred on a visit to town.

Built up browns and greys is not a place I expected to find a bright red gem. Yet there was, in the middle of the pavement, a red-headed cardinal beetle. Unaware of the dangers of the feet, that trudged by oblivious to the tiny life sat in a desert of tarmac.

I offered the little beetle my finger and it climbed aboard. I scanned the area for any vegetation. Spying a hawthorn bush, I introduced the scarlet creature to the oasis of green. Without hesitation it scurried into its safe new home.

I left my tiny friend there, thankful for the colour it had brought my day.
