The Fabulous Two-Course Meal

There once was a beetle named Bill
who found pollen to be quite a thrill.
But the petals appealed,
so he sat for a meal
and proceeded to eat to his fill.

 

Comments always are welcome. Thanks to Blaine Mathison at BugGuide.Net for the identification of the beetle: a member of the genus Strigoderma. The flower is Argemone albiflora, the white prickly poppy.
