A very hungry wee beastie! (thanks to Marie-claire, I now know this is a bee-beetle!)

A very hungry wee beastie! (thanks to Marie-claire, I now know this is a bee-beetle!)
Enjoying itself hugely. It had an amazing appetite and devoured this daffodil almost before I got my phone out of my pocket!
Best on 'z'!
By sheer coincidence Marie-claire Gallet has also posted a photo of this insect. You can see it on explore. She knows the name so thank you Marie-claire!!!

Probably not. I think said beastie would have been sitting back and belching contentedly by that time!
