~Oedemera lurida~

Managed to find quite a few of these guys yesterday, I think these are Oedemera lurida, we don't tend to see Oedemera nobilis up our way and these beetles don't have the brilliant metallic green colour. I liked the pose here, it was quite a breezy afternoon and it was most frustrating trying to photograph these, I had to wait for a still moment, did not see a single Damselfly yesterday, I think I may have to do an early rise soon and go looking.

No photography today, that cold wet weather is back, don't think it has stopped raining yet, feel sorry for any people planning a Street Party for today :o)

 

Hope everyone has a great Bank Holiday :o)
