Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. If you like what you see, I encourage you to subscribe so you can enjoy the new photos I post a few times a week.
I was taking photos of roses a few days ago and that’s when I found this little guy hiding in the center of a yellow rose. It’s a green figeater beetle, more commonly known as junebug, and it was the size of my thumb. I was worried it’d leave when I got closer to take pictures of it but no, it just stayed there patiently until I was done. I love the metallic green of its shell!

Here’s an even closer shot of this green junebug. Check out the “hairs” on the head!
