This beetle (and many others like it) have shown up in my uncle’s pool in Pierrefonds, Quebec, Canada. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. 🙂

Dear Jeff,
This is an invasive, exotic Japanese Beetle and we have already made a posting this year commemorating the 100 Year Anniversary of its accidental introduction. Most home gardeners in eastern North American are very familiar with Japanese Beetles, dreading their yearly appearance when they feed upon the leaves and blossoms of roses, fruit trees and many other cultivated trees, shrubs and flowers.
