Fine art illustration of a Glorious Beetle (Chrysina gloriosapra.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Glorious Beetle was completed on 10.5.2013. I had drawn one of these lovely insects many years ago, but had decided it wasn’t a good enough illustration to be part of the image library. But I thought I might like to make a collage of some of the more amazing and beautiful beetles native to North America. And the Glorious Beetle had to be part of that. So, I found a great reference photo by Margarethe Brummermann who was kind enough to give me permission to use it and made the above drawing.
