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!
Great shots! An impressive junebug!
Impressive indeed! This junebug was quite large, which made it easier to photograph for sure.
Beautiful pictures of the junebug!
Thank you very much! And thanks for stopping by and commenting.
Beautiful colourful bug.
Thank you. I love this metallic green.
Wonderful captures of that little creature.
Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment today.
I’m not a fan of beetles, but I’ll agree, that green is pretty cool!
Large beetles can be pretty freaky when they fly or crawl right in front of you. But they can have some very cool colors, so I can’t complain.
Wow, great captures! He’s pretty amazing, our june bugs are a drab brown!
Thank you! We don’t see that many green beetles so it was nice to have the opportunity to photograph it. Usually, it’s more of the large black scarabs, or the smaller stink beetles.
This little character looks as if he could glow quite well in the dark! Great photos!
Thank you very much!
