This beetle flew into our glass doors leading onto our balcony of our apartment last week. My son Oliver is studying “mini-beasts” in school so we were quite excited to find such a beautiful insect. We took it on the balcony and photographed it. Oliver then practiced “catch and release” and let it go.
There are over 15,000 types of Jewel or Metallic Wood-boring Beetles so I can’t identify the species.
