Japanese Beetles (Two Photographs)

Voracious eaters of almost everything green, found alone and in hordes, not a gardener’s friend. On the other hand the Japanese Beetle’s jewel-like colors certainly appeal to close up photography. Their eyes are often hidden as they keep their heads close to the ground. Their carapace is highly reflective. When they fly it is hard to recognize them as the same beetles you see on the bushes. They tend to ignore humans so they make easy targets for photography, especially if you can get them when preoccupied. Not my favorite insect but one that can be interesting.
