Caption: Longhorned beetle. High-speed photograph of a longhorned beetle (family: Cerambycidae) taking off from a flower bud. These beetles are characterised by very long antennae. The beetle is coloured yellow and black which in nature are warning colours. The larvae of the longhorned beetle tunnel into trees and can do considerable damage to timber. Often the longhorned beetles are introduced into countries via imported timber.
