Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Attack of the giant beetle!

No, this isn't an ad for a cheesy horror movie, it's another image from our little jaunt down Highway 115 yesterday. This enormous Hercules beetle is a Colorado Springs landmark. It's there to tempt you into visiting the May Museum, which I'll admit I've never done! I have, however, taken a few pictures of the giant beetle over the years. It's hard to resist! And I'm proud to report that he's even listed on www.roadsideamerica.com, a true distinction indeed.

Definitely one of the more memorable roadmarks of Colorado Springs!

Looks like a scene from an old horror movie in black and white!

If I'd known Colorado had such threateningly large beetles, I might not have gone out there last fall!

How big is this thing in real life?

I know Colorado beetles are dangerous to trees, but that one looks positively leathal!

Jacob, it's a big big bug! It's probably about 20-25 feet long. Huge! I love it!
