2days after mentioning in this thread https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1526158 that I'd never seen a chafer beetle in 17 years of macro shooting, guess what turned up in the garden

A rose chafer.

Really terrific and beautifully controlled light, especially for the flash that did not fire. At least according to the details on Flickr. What degree of magnification and crop? A large beetle?

Must look out for one. Sadly our garden is bereft of a lot of the usual insects. Quite a lot of honey bees, earlier bumble bees are scarce, no aphids, or their ant farmers, or hoverflies.

Brian,

Mine haven't turned up for the first time in years. Perhaps you have enticed them away?

The difficulty is to get a clear face shot amongst all those flower bits and pieces.

Typical law of attraction. You were no doubt really thinking how wonderful it would be to have a chafer beetle in your garden and languish there for a while. Nice images Brian and your Chafer Beetle looks quite happy to be there. No doubt it will relay your hospitality to all it's friends. Prepare to see more bugs like it! As a good friend of mine says, "Thoughts become things." Think more about other such guests you would like to have in your garden and how wonderful you will feel when they are there.
