This iridescent green ground beetle with a bright orange rim around his wings looks a lot like Chlaenius sericeus!

This is so cool!
He's actually sitting in a shallow plastic bowl, not water! I figured I'd put him in there, so he didn't get harmed while I photographed him
Thanks for the positive ID
ooh good picture! Nice colours :-)
Interesting to place it in water. Looks like it helped perk it up! :) Good Picture!
