    I confess I don't know the real name of this beetle, but his colorful appearence makes me call him a "Rainbow" bug :) 

    30D + Makro Kilar 40mm f/2.8

  2. I think he's gay. ;-)

    Great shot, by the way!
  3. very well done Igor!
  4. Nice bug...almost looks like it's made out of shiny metal.
  5. "Rainbow Beetle" is a good invention. It is surely one of our most colorful beetles (although extremely common). Its Latin name is Chrysolina fastuosa, in literature and internet probably still often found under the name Dlochrysa fastuosa.

    Good shot.
