Oedemera nobilis (Henbra)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]|
|Oedemera nobilis is a beetle in the family Oedemeridae, a common species in Western Europe, including the south of England|
The male of Oedemera nobilis, as in most Oedemera species, possesses the hind femora very swollen, whereas in female the femora are thin; the elytra are strongly narrowed towards the apexes, not hiding the membranous hind wings. It is bright green, frequently with a golden or coppery shine; some individuals are blue or violaceous. It can only be confused with Oedemera flavipes (which does not live in England), from which it differs by its colour, as well as by the long white pubescence on the head, pronotum and hind tibiae of males.

Hello, this is certailnly a differeent POV but very fine and unique. Wonderful image of the beetle. Your small aperture blurs the bg but gives up a little in sharpness. Nice photo.
