Christmas has come early.

This is a Christmas beetle. Anoplognathus prasinus. These little beasties turn up when the heat turns up in Australia, typically in mid-to-late-December (hence the name). This one just flew through my window, smashed into the monitor three times, tried to eat my Muuto lamp, then finally settled on the desk.

Either Christmas has come early, or things are heating up sooner this year (it’s still November).
