Common English Name: Metalic Wood-Boring Beetle

Length: 7-15 mm. Mediterranean species. The larvae develop in thicker drying branches of oaks (mainly Quercus pubescens) for 2-3 years. Adult fly in May-June at forest edges. Males can often be found on yellow flowers while females visit flowers less frequently. Can be found at many places in warmer oak forests in mountainous and hilly regions.

Buona sera Silvio,
Che insetto bel colore!
Splendid POV con un BG top, complimenti.
Una composizione di classe alta e molto interessante.
Best pensieri,
Adrian

P.S. Spero vi piaccia e la mia dedizione a voi il TL.

Ciao Silvio,
altra splendida macro per documentare questa specie, di cui ormai sei un fine conoscitore, bellissimi colori solari e ottima nitidezza, mi piace moltissimo il taglio compositivo un po' più complesso del solito e molto ben bilanciato in ogni sua parte.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Ciao Silvio,
Very attractive jewel beetle, with fine colours, great sharpness and nice low POV. The female has more colours but this one is very beautiful too, with blue tones on the antennae and golden reflections. Well done MF,

Bonjour Silvio,
Une image si colorée qu'on a la nostalgie de l'été.. quelle belle "composition" de l'image et un adorable petit coléoptère perché sur cette fleur qui nous apparaît comme un petit soleil. Très bien vu!
Bon après-midi
Amitiés
Anne

Ciao Silvio. Il dettgalio sullo "sbrilluccichio" del vestito è impressionante. Certo che con un posatoio di quel colore hai avuto il tuo bel da fare. Interessante, nel contesto compositivo, il ramo contro lo sfondo sfocato.
