Thick-Legged Flower Beetle

I haven't seen any new wildlife on the plot for a while so was pleased that this little chap stayed still for a photo.
Look at those legs! They are what identifies him as male.
A flower beetle (Oedemera nobilis) - pretty little thing. It lives on pollen, so no problem with him visiting the allotment site!
