Soldier beetle

Observation - Soldier beetle. Description: Lots of these beetles seen in the forest recently. It was good luck that I took the first photo, the beetle taking flight just as I took the photograph. Lacking the black-spot on the pronotum typical of C. rustica, I think this is C. pellucida.
