Here's a couple of shots of my first oil beetles - Violet Oil Beetles in the inlaws North Devon garden back over Easter. The first one was significantly bigger than the second - had to triple check they were the same species. Both were just scuttling about on pathways in broad daylight - not sure if they are unpalatable to birds!
