The Rose and the Beetle

I was walking through the Brookdale Park Rose Garden this afternoon when I came upon this pretty rose. When I looked closer, I noticed a beetle resting comfortably on the lower petal. Now, I think this is a Japanese Beetle. These little guys not only want to rest on the rose, they want to eat it! If the gardener shows up and spots this beetle on the rose, the beetle is fertilizer! So, I took a quick shot with my camera, and walked away quietly, whispering to the beetle, Bon Appétit...
