Artist's Description

A ten-lined June beetle ( Polyphylla decemlineata ), a species of scarab that live in Western North America, clings quietly to an alder leaf. When disturbed, these striking and rather large arthropods can make a distinctive hissing sound by pressing air out from under their wings. This creature is also called a watermelon beetle apparently because of its ovoid shape and stripes.

Given the watemelon-like theme, this image would make a great wall hanging for a kitchen or restaurant. Perhaps a poster-sized version over the fireplace for a topic of discussion when guests are visiting.
