These colourful bugs were sitting in a patch of sunlight on a tree. I liked the contrast of shiny colour bugs to rough brown bark.

Very rare congregation of these colourful Jewel Bugs, Sue. The yellow one in the middle looks like a different species altogether.
A bigger version would have been better.
Nonetheless, it is a good picture.
Welcome to TN!

Hi Sue,
Nice composition, very colorful and with good sharpness.

Que lindos escarabajos y q colores mas llamativos, excelente foto, te felicito.

Hello Sue and welcome among TN members!
Very nice documentary picture showing both stages of jewel bug species - lavea (almost all individuals) and adult (yellow one). Anyway, one correction is needed, these are not beetles (Coleoptera) but bugs (Heteroptera) :>
Best greetings from Poland,

Hi Sue,

Nice capture of these Cotton Harlequin Bugs, “Tectocoris diophthalmus” I have had the same little bugs in my garden, amazing colours. Here's I shot I did a while ago now, "http://www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=184208"

Cheers Rick :)

These are so COOL! Love the colors!
