Wasp Beetle - Clytra arietis

Sometimes you don't need to go looking....

This beauty just appeared in the kitchen late at night. A great and colourful example of a  Longhorn Beetle. This one is a wasp mimic although (apart from the colour) he didn't act very wasp like. However the next day I also saw one flying around the vegetable patch and it was a lot more active and could have been mistaken for a wasp.
