This is beautiful, John.
The bug has gorgeous colors and patterns, and I like the translucent edges to his carapace.
Excellent focus and exposure, and a very pleasing composition against the complementary green BG.

Hello John
This is a new species for me. Well captured with excellent focus and POV. The shield over the head reminds me of a North American lightning bug.

Hi John,
Really excellent picture of this splendid beetle (cassid may be ?). Its shield, translucend at the edges, striped and yellow at its center, is so interesting to see. The pose is so well chosen, the beautiful green backgroung emphasizing its transparency.
Thanks for sharing. Patrick
