Notes:

In the backyard there were 2 beetles together pushing something looking like a log. They were moving it in a hurry to who knows where. Couldn’t upload the file it was too big. The log turned out to be a piece of dog turd. Tried to find it online but no beetle looks like it. Pink fluorescent upper, green fluorescent or iridescent lower half

    Its details are not to clear. A wild guess, maybe one of the dung beetle, possible the rainbow scarab? (Phanaeus vindex)? Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/83929-Phanaeus-vindex
