Hercules of the bug world

Hercules of the bug world (click the photo to see a larger version)

One of the first things we saw in Bukhara was the strongest and most valiant bug—for his weight—that I have ever seen.

Here’s a pic of him (at least I’m assuming it was a him) carrying home a feather.

He hovered about 30 centimetres off the ground and flew at least 100 metres. Poor John and I watched him for about 10 minutes, until he flew out of the touristic site we were visiting.

Given that I’m assuming it was a him, I hope the feather was a pressie for the missus or the kids. (Hope you can see him in the photo.)

Don’t forget to pick a number.
