Story and art by Ashley Spires.
Meet Burt, a ten-lined June beetle. He's sure he belongs in the category of bugs with superpower-like abilities.
No, he can't carry 50 times his weight, like ants. No, he's not able to spray paralyzing venom, like some termites. No, he can't release a bad smell to repel predators, like stink bugs. What June beetles are known for is chasing porch lights and flailing their legs in the air - does that count? Hmm ... Maybe Burt will just have to accept the truth. June beetles don't have any special abilities.
But when some other bugs find themselves in perilous trouble that even their superpowers can't get them out of, Burt suddenly realizes there is one thing that he can do to save his friends - and it's something that only a June beetle can do!
