Description: June is lurking around the corner and already we are experiencing the annoyance of the June Bug. Today I will be showing you how to draw a June Bug, step by step. The June bug is a large dark brown beetle that makes their presence known during the late Spring months and early Summer nights. June bugs don't come out in the daylight hours, instead they swarm around at night and where I'm located, there is no escaping them. We hear June bugs bounce off our screens, doors, and around our outside lights. They are attracted to light, but stay at bay during daytime. They eat vegetation from plants and trees, and they are even considered a treat in some states like Maine. I know one thing, I can't stand June bugs and when ever we wake in the morning we see a bunch of June bugs dead on our porch. I don't know why that happens, it just does. Anyways, have fun drawing a June bug, I will be back with more so don't go away.
