Blue Beetles


I'm suspecting that this small group of bluish beetles are either juveniles or male/females of the beetle I showed you yesterday. They were on the same tree, and seemed to be 'hiding' in the bend of the branch. The colours are just so beautiful, aren't they?

Pretty beetles - could they be 'stink beetles' so named because when you disturb them they release a horrible odour? Either way, a great find while you were out.

Thanks for commenting Cathy. They could be...I have no idea at all about these beetles. All I know is that the colours are wonderful.

Gorgeous colours, they look quite big, you wouldn't want one of these blighters landing in your packed lunch as you relaxed under that tree.

They are surely eye-catching, and must have absolutely made your day.
