[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Amphimallon solstitialis, the Summer Chafer. Quite distincly smaller than the Cockchafer, which also becomes adult earlier in the year. The Summer Chafer is normally active at dusk, and quite sluggish when caught at noon, like this one...

Very interesting animals, with fine details. Good colors and framing. Congratulations!

Hola Philippe,
una complicada toma de esta rara especie poco o nada vista en Tn que resolvistes bien, dado su pequeño tamaño, su textura y la luz de ese momento.
Preciso enfoque al primer plano, aunque algo justa de profundidad. Un bonito trabajo.

Saludos: Josep Ignasi.
