Pics #1 to 4 show a female. Pics # 5 & 6 are that of a male. These beetles have long legs and long narrow bodies ( 11mm)with elytra that is slightly shorter than the abdomen. The long antennae have white tips. The male beetle looked similar to the female but was shorter in length. It had its elytra spread open (pic 6)
Spotted feeding on nectar in a cluster of white flowers. This shrub was growing in a nature reserve.
The female beetle's thorax and front legs were covered with pollen. http://www.flickr.com/photos/nuytsia_pix...
