Life involves suffering that all of us share and are engaged in (as one); curtail it – don’t increase it – in others.
[This insect is a Japanese Beetle. They are known for destroying a lot of food crops and garden foliage. Farmers and gardeners tend to deeply despise them. They were particularly bad a few years ago. Back then, there were so many in our area that — even while driving your car for a short while — dozens of them would splatter onto your windshield! They are becoming less of a nuisance due to pesticides and an increase in the types of birds that eat them. The one photographed looks rather impressive… for such a despised nuisance!]
