Violet Ground Beetle


5 months agoSteemit2 min read

Hey Steemians,

Again, we had awesome weather today and the temperatures were very pleasant at around 25°C. If the weather forecast is right we will, unfortunately, get some rain for the weekend.

I discovered this Violet Ground Beetle walking on the ground. The violet shimmer can be guessed slightly. As my dog smelled at it, it went into this defensive position and has stopped moving anymore, so that I was able to shoot this picture with a higher f-stop to get a deeper field of view.
