Oedemera nobilis

By Ade_Osman    
A male Oedemera nobilis-Sometimes knows as a blister beetle feeding on a daisy, taken back in the summer when we had warmer weather.

Thanks for looking and all the very kind comments on yesterdays upload.....Been very busy all this weekend with the garden wildlife and one or two issues surrounding that, but hopefully that's all sorted now and I should be back to my usual amount of commenting and voting this evening once the garden cameras get switched on. Things have been very slow with the hedgehogs in the garden but in fairness we are right on the cusp of them all hibernating for the winter, so sighting of them feeding are getting fewer and fewer now. But if you want to try and get lucky my advice is to check by sometime after 9-10pm, but nothing is guaranteed I'm afraid, after all it is wildlife and whilst they do come into the garden to feed, they can't be relied upon to make any kind of appearance.....Just in case you don't know where to look by now, here's the link Ade Hedgehog/Fox Garden Cam

As always thanks for stopping by and regards to everyone.....Ade

Plenty of these muscle-bound critters over here in the Spring, Ade, beautifully captured. Rain, wind and thunderstorms forecast for the next 4-5 days, good thing I have an archive to fall back on Smile Carol
