[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Scarab beetle (Trichius fasciatus).
I like the fringes on its side and back, and the ones with a different colour in its neck. It was busy spreading pollen of this noxious plant, cow parsnip or hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium).

No PP other than crop, resize & USM.

Welcome on TN Franck,like the colors here,but I liked the one on TL more..Maybe cropping a little tighter from the bottom would do the job, this one also looks a bit oversharpened..nevertheless a good capture, never saw this one in Belgium.
