Size: approx 1 inch
I had been with some insect collectors the night before who had quite a few of scarab beetles of different species. I wondered how I could get myself 1. The next day one flew towards me and landed on my shoulder. I captured it and later let it go. It was a beautiful being and I did not need to keep it. I would like to know what species..
