Just sharing some Japanese Beetle pictures I took yesterday.
Your letter is so timely because we just selected the Japanese Beetle as the Bug of the month for July. It appears your mating Japanese Beetles are on a Rose of Sharon, which mom claims is a magnet for the pestiferous invasive exotic leaf chafer.
Awesome!! I am a new fan of nature photography and seem to get more pictures of bugs than anything. I am loving it!!
