[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trichius fasciatus is a beetle species belonging to the family Scarabaeidae, subfamily Cetoniinae.

This beetle is present in most of Europe and in the East Palearctic ecozone.

These beetles are about 10 millimeters long and can be encountered from May through July feeding on petals of a variety of flowers (Thymus, Rosa, etc).

Head and pronotum are black, while the elytra are yellowish, crossed by a few black bands. The first black band reaches the scutellum. The sides of the chest and the back of the abdomen are covered with a white pubescence, hence the popular name "bee beetle" for Trichius species.(Wikipedia)

Witaj Siggi,
Piekne te twoje chrzaszcze a ten ma takie ciekawe wzorki i pastelowe kolory. Przyznaje, ze rzadko spotykam ciekawego chrzaszcza, pewnie dlatego, ze specjalnie nie szukam.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

Magnífico primer plano de unos colores desbordantes !
Enhorabuena por tan bonita captura Siegfried:
