I noticed this very large beetle while going to a mall one day and had to take some photos. It was actually a bit of a lucky find at first, but of course once I knew what to look for I soon noticed where to regularly find these guys: Buried in large flowers! It’s a pretty cute and lovely bug, which happily posed for several photographs (including on my hand).

The only thing I regret is that despite my (near) infinite patience, this insect would just not open up its wings for me to get a shot of them. Next time I find one I shall carefully observe it to see if it will give me an open wing shot.
