The Japanese Beetle (Popillia Japonica)

It turns out this beetle is an invasive species here in North America. They quickly consume leaf matter and all that remains is the leaf vine structure like a leaf skeleton. They're very beautiful with shiny metallic green and copper wings. Especially unique are the 12 fur-like white tufts running along it's side.
