The Beetle Bush

I do not know the name of this tree so I decided to call it the “Beetle Bush”.  As I looked to find a good flower cluster to photograph I noticed that it was full of beetles either flying around or mating (and there was a lot of that going on).

If you look closely you can see two beetles mating.

  1. Beautiful flowers and captures. Beetles, beetles everywhere this time of year. The flowers look like a crepe myrtle. In fact, I think they are the same color as my crepe myrtles. 🙂

  2. You know it’s not good to have those around? Japanese Beetles eat everything and they’ll strip your yard. The best way to get rid of them is prevention – put down a milky spore into your lawn and the grub can’t hatch.

    I know they’re beautiful, but you don’t want them. We put traps out in our yard in Ohio and collected bag after stinky bag of them.
