[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These Beetles are agricultural pests in India. I noticed a large number of them in my school vegetable farm, eating away vegetables leaves. They eat and defecate simultaneously, and in large qunatities.
This one looks like a nymph to me.

Bonjour Ram,
Your note explains the picture :-).If these beetles are pests, they are very photogenic even in full activity!
Love the color-combination and the well chosen composition. You seem to be often in your school vegetable farm, but I suppose by now there are not so many creatures around any more, or am I wrong?
Thanks and kind regards

Hello Ram,
Wonderful composition, gr8 color, sharpness and excellent focus.
