Rose Chafer - Macrodactylus

Rose Chafer - Macrodactylus
James River National Wildlife Refuge, Virginia, USA
July 14, 2007
Size: 1 - 2 inches

Macrodactylus subspinosus certainly looks right to me. This is a pretty distinctive beetle. Nice shot. I must say, those legs don't look too functional. I'd be interested to actually see one of these myself
