FIG BEETLE

Fig Beetles are a flower scarab beetles found around much of the southwest during summer monsoons in July and August. They are colorful and seen in the daylight hours. The Fig Beetle name comes from them eating sap and fruit, which includes figs, along with prickly pear fruit. Here are some I saw on thistle in the Verde Valley area of Arizona.
