|Thick-legged Flower Beetle ~ Oedemera nobilis|
I was struck by the iridescence of this beetle, scuttling its way across an Ox-eye Daisy. I wonder what pigment colour it really is, once you 'remove' or 'ignore' the iridescence. I saw several of these insects last week at WWT Llanelli. The males have particularly thick femora or thighs.
