Iridescent Green Beetle

Known as Thick-legged Flower Beetle and Swollen-thighed Beetle. This one was perched on a burdock flower - I liked the contrast of the green and pink colours. I had to hold the stem in one hand to try and keep it still in the stiff breeze! This of course meant waving the camera about single handed…so I feel lucky to have got a relatively sharp shot.

Our daughter is borrowing my car later today…mainly to take eldest granddaughter and friends to Lightwater Valley tomorrow…part of her continuing birthday ‘party’. I have had the battery on charge all day as it has not been used in the 4 weeks since our holiday…just as well I checked this morning as it was pretty low!
