I hate those beetles - they eat everything from flowers to fruit and then lay their eggs in the soil which then produces those fat worms that destroys the roots of your plants !

There are many interesting bugs that come from repulsive looking worms and grubs. Butterflies are top of the line yet beetles like this one make top notch images too. TG
