Scarabeo rinoceronte (Oryctes nasicornis)

Male Oryctes nasicornis found dead behind the house by my neighbor, gouache on Fabriano sketchbook, one day I'd like to see a fight ...between males!!!


  1. He's beautiful, Maria! I've seen a few of those...not fighting though.

  2. I love your contrast between the detail work on your beetle and the loose watercolor in your scene. Beautifully painted.
