They certainly look beautiful with those straight lines on their metallic green backs, Ron. The genus of Beetles is really very large and I hope your identification is right.
Assuming the purple flower to be fairly small, it is a marvellous macro image with pin sharp focus on all the nine insects.

Hi Ron,lucky meeting with this big group of beetles on the single flower. A difficult pic to do,but not for you as i can see,the sharpness is excellent and the metallic colors are very bright. I search the exact name without result,this family is very very big..ehhe..have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Very nice metallic green colored beetles with excellent details....The focus is wonderful despite that those beetles are not in the same field....Nice composition.
I'm not sure, better to say don't know anything about this species. Just searched in Google and it looks like Tiger Beetles.
Like the way you have thrown the BG far and isolated your Beetles family. Colour looks very nice. Details are good too.
Thanks for sharing and hope you will get perfect ID if it's wrong,

Although composition and the colors are very nice, all the insects + also the flower seem oversharpened and the background noisy. A pity, because the scene's spectacular enough.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
