Orange Beetle
Description:

Apologies for the poor picture quality! Spotted loads of these orange beetles on flower heads in the wooded part of the nature reserve. I guess it's a type of long horn beetle?

The Wonder of iSpot!

I posted shots of these things without knowing what they were; a couple of days after my Observation recieved an id I am able to supply one AND have it confirmed. By the way, Liz, I mentioned in my Observation how lots of these Red Soldiers were mating here in Sussex. Was this also the case in Suffolk?
