[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this beetle while I was camping in Algarve. This was my last day in the park so I'd decided to shoot my neighbours. First I tried some ants but they move to fast and it's hard to distinguish from the sand but then I've found some friendly beetles...

This beetle belong to the Tenebrionidae family.
Thanks for the help Radomir :)
