A Couple of Scarab Beetles


These two beetles are both members of the Scarabaeidae (Scarab) family.  Painted them some years ago in an old sketchbook of mine.  Eudicella gralli and Jumnos ruckeri

  1. Ever since I saw, The Mummy movies – I’ve developed a new fond and fearful respect for the scarab – though – they don’t eat through flesh in three movie magic seconds ala Mummy – they’re still frightening. But alas, here they are in their bejeweled emerald splendor looking perfectly spectacular and too pretty to want to inflict harm (at least while your still breathing 😉 ).
