Lycid Beetle - October 2012

These Lycid Beetles have been prominent over the last few weeks at Jarowair.  They are a facinating looking beetle with their broad serrated antennae and orange/brown colourings.  This photo was taken on a Yukka plant in the house garden, but they are prolific in the vegetable garden and almost everywhere really.

  1. Great looking beetle and love the colours. He looks like he has a bit of web on him.

    1. yes you are right, I didn't realize it at the time I took the photo that he had spider web on him, it does take away a little from how striking he is!
