Rose chafer

Destructive jewel

Destructive jewel

I have a perfectly ambivalent attitude towards rose chafers.

I hate them for destroying roses.

Recently I’ve found them burrowing head first into nectarines.

On the other hand I’m dazzled by the great slab of iridescence on their backs.

This one was dead when I found it, floating in the swimming pool, so luckily I didn’t have to decide its fate.
