Something was eating holes in most of the plants in the garden - monocots and dicots alike. So I popped out one evening to find the perps, and here they are - rather pretty gold beetles.

I took photos over a couple of months of insects visiting the flowers on this plant. If the photo in this particular ob is not good enough for ID, then I'm sure you will find more photos of the same species in another ob - you can use this filter to find them, just change the taxon name as required -
