Japanese Beetle

Japanese beetle

Summer is here and along with it come the Japanese beetles. An immigrant that I’d just as well preferred had stayed in Japan. They are common here in these parts and quite a pest for gardeners. I captured this guy in my backyard this evening and had to stick him in a plastic ziplock bag just so I could observe him well enough to draw him. They don’t like sitting still!
