Rosalia longicorn (Rosalia alpina)
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Despite the fact that this rare insect is a protected species, and actually the mascot animal of Duna-Ipoly National Park, I had to save it from being killed by disrespectful hikers on Csóványos... The insect's distinct color and pattern helps to hide in its habitat, the beech tree.
