Manuka Beetle

Pyronota festiva


Bright green chafer beetle about 10mm long.


Found in farmland near the borders of the Urewera National Park.


My husband and I were out walking on Christmas day when this little guy landed on his jersey. I got this shot just before he opened his wings and flew away :)
