[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is likely a Scarabaeoidea beetle but it looked like a huge ladybird, around 2cm long. It was sitting on the rim of the garden waste bin, but i decided against trying to move it to a leaf background as it would likely have flown away. First time seen.

Thanks to Marcello for his ID of this beetle.

Hola Murray.
Bellos colores de este insecto. Buen encuadre y la iluninacion permite ver sus atributos

Ciao Murray,
non conosco la fauna australiana, ma posso dirti che questa specie appartiene alla Famiglia Cetoniidae (Scarabaeoidea).
Splendidi i colori ed il disegno sulle elitre.

Hi Murray,

A good close-up image of the bug, the point of view is showing the details and colors of the insect. The photo is clear and precise, it is also well framed. Well done, have a nice day.

Hi Murray.
Very nice close-up with prefect details and sharpness of the insect. I also like excellent colours of the insect and of the BG. Only reflections on the bug back are strong a bit. Is it flash light? My compliments.
