    Bug, of course. Good or bad? This tree was absolutely full of them, all in the flowers.

    Hi emery, possibly the Capricorne Longhorn or a winged member of that family. Read that France had a big problem with them several years ago. They are sap eaters. I searched online but could not find anything identical for you. Have a look on wikipedia to see if it is similar, sorry cant be of more help.

    It's a fly and not a beetle. Similar ones appear in season in my area.

    March flies
