Thick-legged flower beetle (Oedemera nobilis)

By simmo73
Many thanks to all for your wonderful response to my Kinda-Cute images,
(all U/As thanked)Once again I am very grateful. Weather been pretty grim lately but found this little fellow in our garden about 5mm Long and with huge thighs.
I had to look it up as usual but apparently it's a flower beetle. I never had my macro lens on the camera so not ideal.i have also included a tiny fly about 2mm in Length haven't a clue what it is though.
Hope you like.

Liked this yesterday Geoff, when you showed me, even better up large.
With legs like that and the Regality of appearance-- only wants a crown -- could be Queen Ann!!

Keep e'm coming mate and thanks for all your help. BillSmile
