This is a rare beetle called the Rose Chafer. 3 years ago it visited my garden for the first time, as far as I know, and I was honoured by a request from the SEWBReC (the South East Wales Biodiversity Record Centre) to publish my images at that time – my images were the first modern records held of this species by the SEWBReC, the only other record they had dated back to 1923.
