Garden Fruit Chafer Beetle (Pachnoda sinuata) Family Scarabaeidae

They are about 1 1/2 inches in length when fully grown and feed on fruit and flowers. This one was trying to hide away in the wall.

Then he fell down and gave me a good shot of what he looks like at the bottom. LOL!! Talk about a different view!!
