Day 6, 30 days wild

Lots of dandelions next to the pond, this one had a little visitor. I tried doing some research on it and I think (could be wrong) that this is a beetle, known as the false oil beetle, thick legged flower beetle or swollen thighed beetle. The latin name for it is oedemera nobilis.
Lovely :) Yes it's a thick legged flower beetle, but a female which is why is doesn't have the thick legs. The males ones have really thick thighs!

I love the way you have abstracted the background leaving the beautifully crisp flower head and beetle to stand uninterrupted. marvellous.
