Blue Bugs
Hello!
Found these beautiful blue bugs in between some wild clematis and swamp milkweed. I have never seen them before. They were about an inch long, maybe an inch and a half. They were found mid-day in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Thank you so much!

Hi Jamie,
These are Short Winged Blister Beetles, commonly called Oil Beetles.
