Bugging Me

I'm new here, but liking what I see and of course little creatures, so long as they don't land on me and bite or sting me! So this is a bit of a practice run of posting on here.Bugging Me.jpg

    Hi,

     

    Not sure if you are asking what the creature is you photographed or not. But if you do, it is Calosoma sycophanta, a beautiful, large beetle of the family Carabidae (ground beetles) that feeds on caterpillars and is actually quite difficult to catch due to its mostly arboreal habits.

     

    Cheers
