These photos are taken at our property on the Darling Downs, South-East Queensland and are of the beautiful Christmas Beetles. The Christmas Beetles have this common name not only for their stunning gold and green colouring but for the fact that they frequent urban and rural areas around Christmas time. They are really very clumsy flyers and many end up on our veranda stuck up-side down at night when they come in close to the house for the lights.
Welcome to any new followers to our blog which is a chronological photography journal of Flora and Fauna found on our property in Queensland.
