[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In mediterranean maquis land the rockrose (cistus) is one of the most common shrubs. There are different species of rockroses, but I can not differentiate.
The beetle is a rose chafer (Cetonia aurata) is also common in whole Europe.

Hi Roland.
Lovely colours in the rose, can't see alot of detail in the rose chafer but it is nice having him there for interest. Had you thought of turning this into a verticle crop to bring more attention to the centre of the rose. I have done a photoshop for an idea of what it looks like cropped verticle. Brings the eye straight to the subject.
You have captured the rose and bug with great detail and sharpness with nice exposure.

New Zealand.
