Net Wing Beetle

I was so excited when I managed to capture a moment of one of my most favorite creatures on earth. I had an encounter with one some time ago and was only too pleased when this little guy (or gal for that mater) was hovering around my garden the other day, managing to catch it on camera.

The most intriguing aspect for me is the shape of its head. It is quite a special little video I feel, with a good chance to see him/her close up, cleaning and then later unsheathing its wings and taking off. What a marvel!
