Garden Chafer Beetle

Adverse weather stopped me from heading out to islands of the Mayo coast this week so I ended up wondering around the Burren yesterday evening and today.  While in the Burren national Park at Mullaghmor, I came across loads of Garden Chafer Beetle Phyllopertha horticola mating and eating their way through thousands of Hazel tree leaves.
