je n'avais pas encore vu un tel insecte a vec une couleur comme celle-ci.
la presentation est bien,j'aime le fait que le sujet soit excentré pour laisser de la place a la fleurs.

What an amazing iridescent purple on that beetle that greatly contrasts on the yellow flower! Makes for a very eye-catching photo. Can't help you with the ID though as I'm totaly unfamiliar with Australian fauna :-)

I can't help its identification even though I'm interested in every insects in the world. As you know, Australian insects have evolved independently comparing with other countries's them. Moreover, there are still many unidentified beetles in Australia. Who knows this species might be new. :-) I love Australian insects.
Lovely colours of flower with strange purple beetle.
Very nice captured!!

Brilliant colours, sharp detail and excellent composition make this shot outstanding!
you exploited the chance to oppose very brilliant complementary colours. Structure and colour composition of the picture look very attractive. Focus and depth of field are also pretty good. There is general noise which I tried to compensate by a workshop. I hope that you will like the result.
Best wishes, Peter

Nice metallic purple beetle. Flower and beetle are crisp clear and well seen. Great composition and exposure. Sorry that I can not help with ID.
