|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Rose Chafer (Cetonia sp.) - one of several similar species of subfamily Cetoninae (family Scarabeidae). The members of the subfamily are remarkable by the fact that they have fixed elytra. The hind wings are spread sideways through the specially curved elytra margins (see on the picture). Larvae live in decaying wood and adults feed on flowers. This interesting unusually bicoloured specimen sits on dwarf elderberry (Sambuccus ebulus L.) flowers.|

Belle photo d'un insecte que l'on ne voit pas souvent. Dommage que tout l'insecte ne soit pas net.
Beautiful photograph of an insect which one often does not see. It's a little bit pity that all the insect is not clearness.
Good exposure on this one. Attractive colours and nice pov.
Reaaly good shot Michal, nice shape and details. Like the RED from bulbs, very alive..
