  1. Great and very colorful photos, Diane!
    Your "unknown" is the Thick-Legged Flower Beetle, Oedemera nobilis.
    The male has those over developed thighs!
    The petrol situation is becoming quite worrying indeed, although here there is no panic yet.
    I stocked up some food, just in case but with the removal coming up, it s really a worry.
    When all goes well, we take it for granted, I just hope it doesn't degenerate into civil unrest or worse...
    Keep well, I hope you can make it easily to Paris.
    Warm hugs :)

    1. Thanks Noushka for the identification much appreciated.
      The strike could not happen at a worse time for us, or for you. I just hope things get sorted out as quick as possible!! Both train to Paris and flight out could be seriously under jeopardy! Fingers and toes crossed!
      Keep well and take care big hugs Diane
