Here are my photos for today of the Green June Beetle.

These Green June Beetles, also known as Green June Bugs are large and grow over 1" in length. They appear in late May through the month of June; hence their name.

Adults like this one feed on leaves of a variety of plants and also fruit crops that grow fruits with stones, such as peaches and plums. Their larvae which is also called 'Beetle Grub' can cause damage to lawns. If you have a large brown patch on your lawn, it might be from beetle grub eating the grass roots.

They are a pretty emerald green with a tan or golden border. Their wing coverings may also have a blush of gold. Their underside is a metallic gold which can be seen in these photos.

I found this one on a milkweed plant and it shows the metallic gold underside.

Thanks for stopping by!

All photos are my own.

Thank you so much for the sbi!! :-)

They sure do. I was wondering if anyone was going to see that little gnat. Yay @shasta! Thanks for your compliment, my friend. : )
My pleasure for the SBI. : )

Nice shots of the green june bugs. I used to collect these guys off the peach trees when i was a kid. They would bore their way into the peaches. some peaches looked entirely green because of so many beetles embedded in them. Here's my entry for this week.

Thanks @sketch.and.jam! That is crazy about how many of these beetles were embedded in the peaches. I am lucky if I see 2 for the whole year. Thanks for your entry. : )

Lovely and interesting pics as usual @whatisnew
Here is my entry, good luck everyone!

Thanks @karbon! And thanks for your entry! : )

Thanks @redheadpei and thanks for your entry! : )

Howdy Butterfly! you got some really great photos here! How are you, has it been another rough week?

Howdy jonboy! Thanks for your kind words. Oh, yes...another really bad week. I will do a post about it in a day or two. Hope you are doing well. I heard about the shooting in Odessa and I was thinking about you. I hope that wasn't close to where you live. Sooooo sad! Be safe out there jonboy and hope to talk with you more real soon.

We are doing great, thanks for asking. Yes that guy in Odessa was crazy and should have been in a mental institution, he had that gun illegally too. Tragic. There were all kinds of red flags that no one paid attention too including a call to the police complaining about him shooting from his roof but they were too busy to go investigate!

I'm so sorry about your bad week, I hate that!

Howdy jonboy! I am thrilled that you and Mrs. J are doing great. Yup, there were a lot of loopholes in that one and now they are trying even harder to take away our guns.
Thanks for your concern about me. Hugs! I just posted my health update and why I had another bad week which you can read here. All is good now and hopefully will continue. : )

Howdy Butterfly! let's hope you have a good run of many weeks before anything flares up again. I'll go read your post today, thanks so much for getting back to me.

Howdy jonboy! I would love to have a good run of many weeks. Thanks for the good thoughts. : )

Howdy Butterfly! you could sure use it. I shudder to think that winter is just around the corner for you guys up there!

YOU shudder? I am dreading it with a passion!!! Autumn is beautiful but even then it is way too cold for me. LOL!

Hi, interesting beetle and nicely captured.
Here is the link to my post

Thanks @nelinoeva! And thanks for your entry. : )

Hi maili63! Thanks for your entry. : )

These Green June Beetles are very magnificent! Their information is interesting. I also love flowers. The color is lovely. Great capture! ;)

Thank for your kind words and for stopping by @tangmo! I love these flowers too. There are different kinds of Milkweed and these are Common Milkweed. Like you said, their colors are beautiful. They smell wonderful too. : )

You're welcome! Oh! I also love that they smell wonderful. ;)

What a beautiful green but 1 inch?!?!!!! That’s is big!
Here is my entry :)

Hi @djynn! It is big and very thick, or should I say robust. : ) Thanks for your entry. : )

WoW! Thank you so much for SBI. That's a great one!

This green bug is gluttonous, he wants nectar like a bee.
A beetle came to visit me. I did not invite him :-))

My pleasure @bambuka! Thanks for your entry. : )
