|~ net-winged beetle ~|
It's quite fascinating to see new & interesting things appearing in the gardens & it seems more & more are making themselves known as the gardens start to fill in & mature.
The net-winged beetle is quite possibly a nectarivore - meaning it consumes nectar from plants. I wonder if this means it also aides in pollination as a minor side-affect. Could it possibly be consuming smaller insects too?
Either way, it's a very interesting beetle & quite large - about 15 mm long & very visible.
