Bee beetle (trichius rosaceus)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The bee beetles are scarab beetles of the subfamily Trichiinae, which is sometimes included in the Cetoniinae as a tribe.
They have hairy sides of the elytra like their relatives, and the upperside of the elytra is usually yellow with prominent black blotches which form incomplete bands. This, and the fact that seen from the side they resemble a hairy plump bee, has given them their common name.




Trichie des roses- Trichius rosaceus

Petit coleoptère scarabeide de la famille des Cetonidae
Le trichie des roses se rencontre sur les fleurs de rosiers (et de nombreuses ombellifères).dont ils se delectent de pollen
Ce qui explique le nom attribué à cette espèce.

Ses élytres ont 3 bandes noires

Commune, elle peut être observée en mai juin dans les régions boisés de moyenne altitude.
Sa larve vit dans le bois en décomposition des feuillus et en particulier des souches.

les larves se nourrissent de bois en decomposition et mettent deux ans avant de se nymphoser


Taille : 9-13 mm
Milieu : jardins
 et bois humides

Wow, Jacqueline, you are not only my neighbour on the gallery tody but have also posted a fantastic picture of the Bee Beetle!
Excellent POV. The focus has turned out to be immensely sharp, resulting in rich details and colours on the insect.
Besides, those cheerful looking flowers add tremendous aesthetic value to your picture.
Proud to be your neighbour :).
Best regards.
Ram

Hello Jacqueline,
These beetles are very cute and your capture is lovely! I've never managed to get such a fine capture of one as they're always busily moving around and digging their heads into the flowers! Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours. A very nice background too. Well done!

Hola amiga,
interesante macro,
buen encuadre y foco...
buena iluminación y color.

Bonjour Jacqueline,

Je ne connaissais pas cet insecte. il est assez mou et le contraste des couleurs très harmonieux. Vous posando capturé sur un grand nombre de fleurs qui répondent à vos nuances, il a permis à l'image d'être très artistique.

Je pense que vous avez un bon œil pour les photos, te felicito.

Aussi la technique de conduite très bien, la réalisation de niveaux de luminosité des prix très élevés et l'équilibre.

Bonne note ci-jointe.

TFS! ;-)

It is striking with has a feeling of warmth and joy written all over it. The detail captured on the Bee beetle is wonderful and sharp. Thanks for sharing this this hairy beetle which I have not seen before. The fine white flowers is such a beautiful backdrop. Best regards

Never seen such species in all my 73 years of existance.
WONDERFUL WORK.
In fact, EXCELLENT WORK.
P.S.
Will in all likelihood pass by your part of town in October this year; Bernardete wants to go back to France.
Mario with friendly greetings.

Bonsoir Jacqueline.

Magnifique photographie de cet insecte occupé à se délecter du nectar de ces fleurs. Très bonne netteté de l'ensemble de l'insecte, nous permettant d'en admirer les nombreux détails. Très bonne restitution des couleurs.

Bravo pour cette publication et pour la note qui l'accompagne.

A bientôt.

Hello Jacqueline,
I've never seen a Bee Beetle before, thanks for sharing this on TN. He looks so nice on the white flower and you captured such nice detail and colour. He's a real beauty.
Janice

Bonjour Jacqueline,

Le sujet est bien cadré. la prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs du Trichie des roses et des fleurs. Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'insecte. La luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
