Metallic

Landed on my hand today and fortunately it was sunny

So cool! Beetles freak me out, so I would have thrown that thing off my hand long before I had time to get the camera and shoot it. I love the metallic look of it and the richness of the green.

Looks like an Aussie Christmas Beetle!

It looks like a piece of jewelry, made of precious metals or enamel.

For a bug, he is a beauty...that color is amazing!

Beautiful bug. No way it would have stayed on my hand even for a second.

Wonderful greens, and nice detail. I too would probably have shaken him off, so kudos to you for grabbing the shot!

Should have saved this one for Macro Monday.
Beautifully irredecent! and brave of you!

Wow. That's photographer dedication to have that guy land unexpectedly on your hand and you grab the camera instead of smashing him to the ground! Nice one handed focusing too!
