Now that summer is here my true love of nature can be unleashed as it is easier to enjoy the outdoors and explore the wilderness that surrounds me. At my cottage I came across a very interesting beetle that I had never seen before; the Spotted June Bug.
The sunset on my lake at around 6:00 PM.
Adult beetles are approximately 2.5 cm long and they feed on foliage along the forest floor of mixed forests throughout eastern North America.
I came across the beetle on one of my nature walks and I was amazed at the color of the beetle because, as an insect enthusiast, I could not identify it as a type of beetle familiar to Ontario. As I later learned they have only been spotted in southern Ontario on a few occasions. This makes them somewhat rare in Canada but fortunately I had the chance to see one.
