Hello Ron ,
This little insect has indeed very nice colors but it is a pest very dangerous for trees....I read more about this insect and he is present also in the UK and Europe damaging the Ash trees.....

Dangerous species! They way they are destroying trees, is well visible in your 2nd WS photograph. Well captured this photograph with excellent BG. Beetle is well placed in the frame. Metallic color looks gorgeous. Perfect sharpness and exposure.
Thanks and best regards,

Thanks for posting this. We are losing a lot of trees in southern Ohio to this species, but this the first image I have seen of one. The workshops are excellent as well. Excellent sharpness and composition. Workshop image #2 shows us the scarlet abdomen of this beautiful but damaging insect. Regards, Greg.
