Golden-bloomed grey longhorn beetle in my wildlife garden?

What a lovely looking beetle! A Golden-bloomed grey longhorn beetle?

Since I had my boring lawn converted to a wildflower meadow, there have been loads of new species that visit it. Too many for me to know each and every single one. It would require a whole new learning curve for that ever to happen and mean many hours on my computer instead of being outside!

Golden-bloomed grey longhorn? In my wildlife garden just before taking off

The Golden -bloomed grey longhorn beetle, (Agapanthia villosoviridescens) is very aptly named though with its very long antennae which are striking both in length and colour. It’s the first time I have ever noticed one. No doubt attracted by the variety of wildflowers in the meadow.
