Party time!

Yesterday I checked our cacti blooms in the Meadow. No surprise when I found these scads of  Kern's flower scarabs (Euphoria kernii), having a rollicking good time. Consider their genus name of Euphoria. Makes sense, eh? These are photos of seven different blooms, packed with beetles!

It's really too bad that a beetle as pretty as these can do so much damage to the blossoms. They're a real menace to my potted cactus specimens! Great photos of them showing off the patterns on their backs!
