The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Looks like this insect is having an identity crisis.. Nice sharp close-up.

"The Bee beetle is a scarab beetle that feeds on the sugar from stems, leaves, fruit and flowers of many different plants. Their bodies are hairy and they resemble the bumble bee, hence its name. Their wings are creamy yellow to deep orange."

Thanks, "y'all" for looking. This beetle is present in most of Europe and in the East Palearctic ecozone.

This is a good and sharp image of the bugs.
