बस यूँही…..

The beetle was busy roaming around the marigold flower. It was an amazingly tender moment of mutual benefit. Flower chafers are a group of scarab beetles, comprising the subfamily Cetoniinae. Many species are diurnal and visit flowers for pollen and nectar, or to browse on the petals. Some species also feed on fruit. The group is also called fruit and flower chafers, flower beetles and flower scarabs. They help in the pollination and propagation of species.

Your presentation reminds me of Julian Huxley, erudite, convincing and pleasant. Such a nice photograph, a bright yellow marigold and a dark beetle, what a contrast in looks! And, the thing is beneficial to the beautiful flower. Can we say, it is the good quality and intentions that matter and not the looks!
