Flower chafers are a group of scarab beetles, comprising the subfamily Cetoniinae. Many species are diurnal and visit flowers for pollen and nectar, or to browse on the petals. Some species also feed on fruit. The group is also called fruit and flower chafers, flower beetles and flower scarabs. There are around 4,000 species, many of them still undescribed.

This is a really gorgeous shot, and it's lovely that you can make something that most people dislike, beetles and insects, into something so pretty.

Just, where I live most people just call them Chistmas beetles, not for any real reason, just that they usually come out during summer months, mainly December, and their colours are Christmassy, green with red and gold. So I guess I like this for another reason; sentimentality. :)

Finishing sentences with triple dots isn't very nice. Dunno what you are after, but just saying.

...What does it matter if she finishes with ellipses? The title's got them, she puts them in other comments and still ends with a full-stop anyway...

Posting a comment like that when it wasn't needed isn't very nice. Just saying.
