TexwisGirl:Yes Indeed!! At a glance it looks like a bee, but on closer inspection it is a handsome little beetle.
Abhinav on 16/6/2012:Amazing!! The bee have taken a bath in the pollen :)
Abhinav, The pollen adheres to the tiny hairs that cover most of the beetle.I must say that he looks as though he's enjoying himself.:)

Faller, The mimicry of the bee beetle does not apply at meal times!!!

S. Etole on 17/6/2012:Is he ever covered with pollen! Wow.
S. Etole, He certainly created a flurry of pollen, when he tucked in!
Giga on 18/6/2012:Ale zachłanny owad, tyle pyłku zabrał. Bardzo ładne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam. But the greedy insect, so he took pollen. Very nice pictures. Yours.
Giga, He must have been ravenous!!:)
Ian on 18/6/2012:That's quite a pollination going on there-looks like an earth-moving explosion. Lucky bug....ger.x
Ian, When I first discovered this beetle I set out each day to see if I could find one.I think they are charming,and fun to watch,as they seem to make a habit of creating pollen storms.x
