Love the colours in this Tom. Here in Australia we get a similar beetle at Christmas time and they are called Christmas beetles.

Amazing colours and iridescence! I guess even beetles like to dress up now and then, Tom.

Great display of color- makes me think of ancient scarabs, though I don't know if they were as beautiful.
