Japanese Beetle?

Maybe it's something from Starship Troopers, did you draw down?

That was my first guess as well. Unfortunately, Japanese beetles are green w/ copper wing covers. That one's red with green wing covers.

Definately looks like some sort of dung beetle. This "Rainbow Scarab" looks the closest to me.
"Phanaeus vindex"

always have called them june bugs since I was a kid
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 12:24:07 AM EDT
that's it.

Can't believe I've never seen one.

thanks for the help identifying it.

Tie a string to its leg and let him fly. Damn I was a sick kid.

Flip it over and take a photo of it's underside to be sure.
Sure looks like a Japanese Beetle.
They invaded my part of the country a few years ago.

Birds are just now learning how to eat them.
(at least here)

Sparrows are attacking the hell out of them in my yard.
They snatch a beetle out of a tree, and quickly fly to the sidewalk.
The beetles are smooth, and are very good at pushing out from between
your fingers, and bird beaks. Often the bird looses it before they get to the ground.

If the sparrow makes it to the sidewalk with it,
the bird flips it over and stabs at it's underside and eats the guts.

for sure not a japanese beetle.

Looks like the big dung beetles we have here - except ours are much bigger than nickel-sized.

I'm an American Beetle

thing prolly escaped from the sandia labs. government is making millionis of these automatic micro bots that are controlled by a series of computers. already released several billion in the middle east to find and spy on muslims.

version 2.01 will have lethal abilities.

gonna be fun to watch the video caps of the insurgents vainly swatting at killer butterfiles..

no more raptors, no more cruise missiles, no more CQB gear, no more tanks on and on..

war will be fought be conscript kids at converted PS2 and XBOX consoles competing for frags-per-hour rewards with video being supplied by DISH and DirectTV.....

i wonder if killer beetles will be classified as destructive devices....
