The Japanese Beetle is generally metallic green with coppery-brown wing covers, which do not quite cover the tip of the abdomen. Along the sides are five patches of whitish hairs. The adult beetle has an oval form and ranges from 8 to 12 mm in length. Typical of other scarab beetles, the antennae are clubbed at the end and may spread to a fan-like form.
That's a reflection of me in the beetle's shell. Pretty cool. Spotted in Elk Neck State Park, North East, MD
