It was my birthday last week & yesterday a late birthday present my daughter had ordered arrived through the post.

The stamps were amazing enough on their own.

But then I opened the packet & this beauty emerged………..

According to the enclosed details, he’s a Blue Rose Chafer beetle, aka Rhomborrhina Gestroi.

Time for some drawing I think……..
