Australian Scarab Beetle Family

Australian Scarab Beetle Family

Photo Information
I found this little beetle on a bush with hundreds of bees collecting pollen. The bees did not mind it taken some of its pollen. The Name of it is:The Punctate Flower Chafer. It is a very gentle beetle and only takes pollen. Contrary to the European May-beetle or our smaller Christmas-beetle which eats leaves and can be quite destructive.
I took this with my Pentax -F 50mm f2.8 macro and the 1.5 Kenko AF extender
