Surrey365; Day 108. Rose Chafer Beetle.

Very similar in structure to a Stag Beetle. This is a Rose Chafer Beetle. The heavy-bodied helicopter whirring occurs during the day with this one, though, rather than at dusk. It’s a spectacular creature, and it loves the Meadowsweet that is currently frothing all over the garden. 🙂
