Toowong Cemetary, Brisbane Australia. Sad that some people get a thrill from defacing the resting places of others - with not even a piece of eight to show for it.
Placed 30th (oh well) in the FujiMugs "Movies" challenge.

Known around here as "Christmas Beetles" as they tend to come out around November/December, our summer. Their colourings are just amazing, providing you can get past the fact that they are, after all... bugs.
They have a wonderful multicoloured speckled back, but once they get tired (like this guy was) they insist on rolling onto their backs and become rather uncooperative models. As it turns out, they have shiny bellies too.

Taken by the sea at Sandgate. Was going to be my entry for the FujiMugs "Symmetry" Challenge, but alas I got home too late!
Taken for the PhotoFriday 'Symbol' topic. The equipment behind the glass is a Telequipment D83 CRO (Cathode Ray Oscilloscope) that still gets permanent residence on my desk despite being rarely used. It's a geek thing, I guess :-)
Hmm... well.... now the PhotoFriday topic is "Nerdy". It's as if I took this photo a challenge or so early! Lazy, yes... but I'm submitting this one again.
