Beetles…

…seem to be everywhere at the moment. Here are just a few:
A Tumbling Flower Beetle: hard to photograph, because as soon as they sense you they “tumble” off the flower to the ground
Tumbling Flower Beetle (Mordellochroa abdominalis)
A Broadbean Beetle
Broadbean Beetle (Bruchus rufimanus)
A new one to me, the tiny Longhorn Beetle Grammoptera ruficornis
Longhorn beetle (Grammoptera ruficornis)
and one of my favourites, the Soldier Beetle Cantharis rustica.

  1. Good shot of the soldier beetle. I like watching these climb grasses and taking flight when they reach the top (leaving me with a photo of grass and no beetle..)
