[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cetonia aurata is large and attractive beetle that can reach a length of 17 mm (approx. 2/3 in). Its clearly flattened elytra are shiny, bronzy-reen and flecked with white lines and marks. It moves in a cumbersome manner among vegetation and is often found on flowers, including roses, hence its English name. It is a very common insect, usually active in sunny weather. It appears between May and September. Larva lives in rotting wood.

Beautiful exposure to bring out the iridescence on the carapace of this scarab. Sharp details and good POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Looking around your portfolio. This is a very good bug shot. The colours and details look all natural. Great work!
