This was identified as a bug weevil scarab on the reference photo. Did you know there are over 97, 000 species of weevil, and around 30,000 scarab beetles. I couldn’t find anything about a weevil scarab, so I’m not sure what this is. Not even sure it’s a bug.

#DoodlewashAugust2021 prompt: Lake. Yeah, those blue splotches look like lakes. I think they’re lakes.
This was meant to be one of the video examples for a review. I was this far in when I realized the camera was off. Turns out it had turned off almost immediately after I started.

Did you know, despite their fierce appearance, the Gelada is the only primate with a diet that is 90% grass blades? Also known as the bleeding heart baboon or bleeding heart monkey, they aren’t either, but are a genus of their own.
