Beetles Mating

I found these two beetles preforming Cirque du Soleil among the blooms of one of our apple trees.
I later found a female of this same type of beetle burrowing into the meadow garden to lay eggs. It's good to know it's supporting more life than just bees and butterflies, but I'd like to get this beetle identified someday. (I'm in New Jersey)
