Bug Life in the Little Forest


Every summer when I walk our trails I see these bugs. Aren't they cool? So neon green? I don't know their name, so if anybody can tell me that would be great!Thanks to Gregor I know the name now! Very cool, thank you!

Jedes Jahr im Sommer fallen mir auf unseren Waldpfaeden diese Kaefer auf. Sind die nicht interessant? So neon-gruen! Ich weiss wieder mal nicht wie die heissen; wenn mir jemand den Namen nennen koennte, das waere toll!
Gregor hat den Namen gefunden! Vielen Dank!!

Ich weiss den Namen nicht, aber der Käfer sieht toll aus! Obwohl Käfer nicht meine Lieblingstiere sind, finde ich ihn schön!

"Ein toller Käfer!" Was die Natur doch an schönem hervorbringt.

How about a Six-spotted Green Tiger Beetle?

Wanda said...

They must be called "Emerald Delight" Emerald is my birthstone...wouldn't he look cute in a ring.

Gudl: I posted the hens today. I'm not happy with my work, but they are what they are.....your hens are much prettier.

Just popped in to say, "Hi." I have been busy just trying to answer all the comments I had been getting and forgot to post at Midnight last night so this date, June 26th, I got some free time. LOL

I like your photograph of the green beetle and while I did check the link and learn the name I have not seen one here where we live. I wonder what their food source is.

Wow! Amazing. Looks like it would fit in perfect in the Amazon jungle!
