Now you've got me searching, didn't know about the other type of chafers running around

Very nice sharp images, Ronny. Quite the detail there.

Excellent Ronny, I've seen those in the past I think, but not for a while. I do agree on the use of flash with macros, can make a big difference. ... Jack

Thanks Jack,

the only thing that keeps me from using a flash is the weight, and I always seem to have not enough hands.

Those are very nice shots, very sharp with great color.

From what I have found, these beetles were a major pest and that is why they were killed off by people to stop crop damage.

Thanks Tom,

read the article, and strange my parents don't remember them being a pest, only that they where abundant.

Found the 3rd one today, looks like they are really appearing again.
