|Bee beetle is the name given to several beetle species of the Scarabaeidae family, mainly Trichius fasciatus, but also for example T. zonatus, or T. abdominalis. The whole body is covered with yellow hairs,except the wing-cases (elytra), which have yellow and black stripes. They can reach about 9 to 12 mm in length. The larvae develop in rotting wood, the adults feed on blossoms.|

Very nice shot, with good details and colors, and excellent composition. Good BG too, nicely blurred. It is really a wonderful bug that you have captured here, well done !

Agréable cliché pour cette Trichie à bandes. La netteté et la profondeur de champ sont bonnes. Les pétales sont un peu surexposés...
Well seen and well done, thanks Morag for sharing.
Great shot! Excellent composition, with beautiful detail and colours. Good BG - nicely blurred. For me I would have cropped it slighlt tighter but thats personal prefence, I might try a workshop tomorrow.
