Insect Parade

Dung Beetle Sisyphus, realizing he is destined to repeat forever the meaningless task of rolling balls of dung up hills, revolts and covers his dung ball with flowers. Other insects, appreciating the journey is what it's all about, follow the enlightened beetle thus creating an insect parade.

Composite done for Illustration Friday's word "Parade."

i think this is my favorite if parade piece ~ your texture, color, and story bring this theme to life.
cheers

This one made me grin--I love the revolt, and the picture is so colorful and the insects so beautiful!
