Cardinal Beetle (Pyrochroa serraticornis) on Stinging nettle
The Red-headed Cardinal Beetle can be seen in woods, along hedgerows and in parks and gardens. The adults are present during the summer and can often be found sunbathing on flowers or tree trunks. They are predators and feed on other insects flying around the flowers on which they are perched. The larvae live under loose bark where they feed on the larvae of other insects.
