Now THAT’s a Christmas beetle. It’s beautiful, you’ve captured the colours so vividly.
I found a dead one of these and took it home intending to take photos of it. I put it up on a shelf but the wicked whippets still found it and chewed it up!
Haha, sounds like something that would happen at our house.
Thanks Lynda, I thought it must’ve been :)

Stunning Josie. It’s called a ‘Jewel Beetle’. There are a lot of different species…all very beautiful.
