Colour Inspiration #22: Rose Chafer Beetle

2015 July 01 Colour palette inspiration beetle photograph hazelfishercreationsI recently spotted this amazing beetle in my garden and thought that its colours were so beautiful I had to photograph it.  I loved its shiny, metallic appearance but how it was also fluffy around the sides! It was around 2cm long.  I looked it up and think it’s a rose chafer (cetonia aurata), apparently a very beneficial beetle to have in the garden because the larvae make good compost!
