LeRoy and his doodlebug hunt

Leroy entertained us with stories of chasing doodlebugs in his youth, and demonstrated his techniques.

Leroy hunting for doodlebugs!

Leroy hunting for doodlebugs!

Doodlebugs are juvenile “ant lions” and hunt by digging a hole in the sand & hiding in the bottom.  When some unfortunate stumbles in, dinner is served!

Doodlebugs are fearsome; adult ant lions look something like a damselfly.

Thanks for the photo, Aletha!
