About This Image

This is one crazy beetle. Shiny metalic iridescent beauty. Similar to a Japanese beetle, but much shinier and built differently. Pictured here on a Lilly petal. Thanks for looking. Don

Don what a beauty. Is he taking on the colours of the lily or are they natural. Fantastic detail and capture

Wow this is a GREAT shot! Don the colors in the photo are outstanding. Did you alter or add anything to this shot? What a beetle. I have a bud that looks very much like your beetle that I find on my roses. Thank you for sharing and composing such a colorful and interesting picture.

Thanks everyone! We seem to be infested with beetles this year. There are thousands of Japanese beetles here, and a bunch of these guys. I have no idea what they are. Hope to find out and will post if I do. Thanks again. don
