Tansy beetle (Chrysolina graminis )
Kingdom Animalia
Phylum Arthropoda
Class Insecta
Order Coleoptera
Family Chrysomelidae
Genus Chrysolina (1)
Size Length: 7-11 mm (2)
Infos from http://www.arkive.org
Included in English Nature's Species Recovery Programme.
The tansy beetle is an attractive bright green leaf beetle, with a coppery sheen . The wing cases were so admired by Victorians that they were used as sequins.
This beetle was once very widespread in Britain, but is currently endangered. It is now restricted to the banks of the River Ouse around York.
You can view distribution information for this
species at the National Biodiversity Network Gateway
Occurs on Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) beside riverbanks .
Little is known of the ecology of this species.
Reasons for the devastating decline of this beautiful beetle are unknown. Present threats include shading mainly by willows, planted to help to stabilise the riverbank, or the introduced plant Himalayan balsam (Impatiens gludulifera).
English Nature has funded a three-year study of the ecology of this beetle at the University of York. Hopes are that insights into the species resulting from this research will aid its conservation

Hi Ridvan,

Good timing on this mating picture of these two green beetles. Sparkling colors and details are very good. They stand out very well from the background.


Well captured shot, they are also abundant where I live in Hampshire feeding on Hazel. Great light and composition

Hello Ridvan,
Amazing capture, wonderful couple, the collors and details are fantastic, great POV and composition.. well done.


Merhaba Ridvan,
What a wonderful composition with sharpness, rich and strong colour and much details on the subject itself!
very well composed and well seen
greeting always

Merhaba Rıdvan,
Fotoğraf gerçekten güzel. Sadece benim bir önerim olabilir, o da makro çekerken eğer biraz da sanat kaygısı taşıyorsak dikkat çekmesini istediğimiz asıl objenin kompozisyonun tam ortasında olmaması gerektiği. Altın kesim kuralını uygularsak göze daha çok hitap eden bir fotoğraf haline gelecek. Umarım sözlerimi ukalalık olarak değerlendirmezsin :).
Selam ve sevgilerimle

Amazing close-up. Good clarity and colors. The lighting really provides depth and texture.

Well done,

Gran foto a pesar de la dificultad que tienen estos insectos por su textura y colores. Buen encuadre y con un fondo muy acertado. Saludos Ridvan.

Wonderful colors and sharpness. The metallic is so well depicted here. Wonderful!!!
Great lighting and good timing. :)
