[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cetonia aurata, the Rose Chafer, has been buzzing around my Cardoon flowers ever since they opened. They are 14 to 20mm in size and the shiny green wings are hard to miss.
At times there were 8 to 10 beetles on one Cardoon flower and they furiously tried to push each other out of the way.The cardoon is related to the Artichoke, instead of the flowerbud, the ribs of the leaves are eaten.

Hi Marialuisa,
this is pretty, most I like the wonderful violet flower. The bugs are glittering metallic, very nice. A good close-up shot, I like it, thanks

Hi Marialuisathese bugs are quite brilliant, and the flower is so colourful and sharp. I don't know this flower, but I love the colour of it. Well shown, thank you.
