D 20 mm; V - VII
Thought once I, that these white sweatbands at the top this damage from temperature . This however it turned out with feature of this beetles appearancem :).
Umbellar flowers like visiting. Juice tastes them from wounded trees' trunks (apple-tree, hawthorns). Larvae live in poplar and willows' decaying stumps.
In contrast to different beetles Cetonia aurata during flight has folded integument, and membraneous back wings stand from under them from side.

Very fine portrait of Cetonia aurata with good sharpness and lighting. The head is often difficult to capture with these beetles, but you managed this with fairly good sharpness.
Well done and thanks for sharing,
Hey Romuszka, piękny ten Twój "skarabeusz".
Szkoda że nie zfociłaś go gdzieś pod piramidą Heopsa.
Fotka jak zwykle wysokich lotów.

Excellent very sharp capture of this beetle in beautiful metallic colour. Nice background and well composed.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

this is a very successful picture of the beetle. Admirable sharpness and detail-richness and in particular the perfect light management are outstanding characters of the picture. Colours are pleasingly natural.
This is an excellent capture of this beetle. I am not usually into macrophotography but I can admire a good one when I see it.
The definition and sharpness are excellent. DOF is nearly spot on.
Very well done,
