Blister beetles are beetles (Coleoptera) of the family Meloidae, so called for their defensive secretion of a blistering agent, cantharidin.
Thanks Maria for the id !
Lovely spotting, Atul!
great spotting, Atul!
LOL may be !!
I can imagine that you must have scared it :-)
Thanks Satyen ! its definitely the secretion and not the rain :-)
Wonderful colours. Lovely spotting! It seems to be secreting the defense mechanism from the behind? Were you threatening it? Or is it rain water?
