The Black oil beetle.
On our first day out, to Breney Common, Steve spotted this gorgeous Oil beetle! :-)
Such impressive beetles!

There were two tiny little wasps (?) on her which I brushed off.

We've also seen them at the CWT Cabilla Reserve, in the Glyn Valley near Bodmin Parkway railway station. It's also a great place to see Brimstone butterflies and Orange Underwing moths in the Spring.

Cabilla Woods is a superb location! Been there several times now as it's one of our favourites.
