A Picture for Sunday - Rose Chafer
Cetonia aurata, or rose chafer. This is the most beautiful beetle I have ever seen, and I saw one for the first time yesterday. It landed on a flower at the allotment, and obligingly posed for photos for a couple of minutes. In the bright sunshine it was dazzling emerald green. It's not often that an insect makes my day.
