Rosemary beetle

insectA shot from last year of a rosemary beetle.  These relatively recent arrivals in the UK may be pretty but they wreak havoc in the garden, especially the herb border.  One shouldn’t anthropomorphise but I can’t help interpreting this one’s expression as more belligerent than guilty.  Perhaps it is thinking of Princess Anne’s famous riposte:

You are a pest, by the very nature of that camera in your hand.
