I have a photo (from summer 2013) of a clock beetle I came across while I was gardening in Donegal in Ireland a few months ago. I never seen colours like this before on any clock beetle insects. I thought was totally unusual to have bright blue streaks of colour on the edges of his shell.
I apologise that my photos are not in great focus, my phone is pretty rubbish, and the colours are not as spectacular as reality.Although they look purple in the pics, it was a real bright blue in reality.
I would just like to know if this is an unusual find, I cannot find anything on google even near similar to it.
Thanks for you help, and any info you have would be greatly appreciated.
