Emerald bomber


An approaching drone

cheer the rose chafer

Rose chafers are the most beautiful beetles, and one of the larger ones found in the UK. They seem to be more prevalent than they were in my childhood and provide an exotic touch to our gardens during May and June. They are closely related to cockchafers colloquially known as May bugs, but are rather more attractive. Loud and clumsy, these beetles have a charm all of their own (although the grubs are monstrously destructive).
