Garden Chafer
Hanneton des jardins

Family: Scarabaeidae
Subfamily: Rutelinae
Size: 8,5-11mm
Habitat: meadows, fields, gardens
Distribution:Central Europe, Siberia, Mongolia

I show this picture of the Garden Chafer for its special acrobatic pose which allows to see the underwings too. In fact it was on the point to fly away.
The larvae live belowground and are known as pests for lawns.

Hello Anne,
照的實在太清晰 很漂亮的蟲子
顏色鮮豔華麗 第一次見到很新奇
光線亮麗 整體都很清楚 連蟲子的絨毛都清晰可見
翅膀要剛開的樣子 不知是剛剛降落 還是要逃跑飛走 很有趣
