Bug of the Week: Scarab Beetle

This week has been very busy, but I do have a minute to post this cute beetle.

Beetles like this one belong to the family Scarabaeidae, which contain the scarab beetles, the dung beetles, and the May or June beetles. Some scarabs are brightly colored like shiny jewels. Others like the dung beetles, are drab or dark brown. Most are easy to recognize with their boxy, square shape. This one is probably picking up a snack of pollen and/or nectar from this flower.
