Cast Away

I have no idea what these 2" long beetles are, but they usually fly through the outdoor living area, hit the wall, land on their backs where they lay until Maria or I sweep them up the next day. Usually when they are on their backs they are faking it. They are like giant cockroaches—hmmmm, maybe they are cockroaches. I have just never asked because in the evening we have bats, geckos, tokay and frogs wandering around.

Yesterday, I found this guy in the pool hanging on for dear life. He managed to grab hold and climb onto a floating Frangipani flower. He was like Tom Hanks in Cast Away only he wouldn't survive because Jerry was going swimming soon.
