Author's notes

This longicorn beetle was placidly wandering about on the epacris flowers, The other beetle, (Cleridae) was busily feeding on the epacris flowers. There was minimal interaction between the two, certainly no aggression, but it was an amazing encounter which produced some nice photos.

The Eleale's are also predators but the Enchoptera was probably too big to tackle.
