Japanese Beetles are out

IMG_7303Here is the first Japanese beetle I have seen in 2014. Is is resting on giant miscanthus in the Grass Collection at the Arboretum. Japanese beetles do not feed on ornamental grass foliage, they just rest there, while looking for raspberries, or grapes, their favorites.
