This red, black and gold beetle ran in front of me across a nature reserve boardwalk in Devon. In the first photo (where it appears to be doing a nose dive)it was using its front legs to clean/scrape its back. The second shot is poor quality but it kept disappearing in and out of the grass growing on the edge of the boardwalk.
