really beautiful bug. A jewel of a bug. :)
wowww. Love it!!
Wha...wha... What?!?! Golden!!!!!!
I would not take it from the wild.
But breeding in a contained environment will help species population.
Best to leave exotic species (plants, animals) alone. Look at and enjoy them in their native environment.
I would love the have this beautiful species. Some day, I will visit India.
I have see the Same in Irupu Falls Karnataka ...Awesome creature...
For a second, it looked like it was in amber. Anyone else see that? It's kinda cool
Woah, it looks like it's in a bubble or a shell!
I have never seen something like that! Congratulations that´s something amazing and pretty!
It looks like it's made out of gold. That's really cool!

thank you childs.kj. for bringing it to my notice. :) seems like there are many people using the images in their own webpages. its alright. I think they've got the identity of the insect wrongly because they must have taken the image when it was misidentified over here (before Ashish Nimkar corrected it i.e. 7 months before) :)
Your photo is being used in an online article by Scientific American but unfortunately they have it mislabeled as the North American species, Charidotella sexpunctata.http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/runn...
