What a beauty! Congrats João - you have earned another well-deserved Spotting of the day!

There are more species of beetle than any other order, and the tortoise beetles are among the most beautiful. Beetles (Coleoptera) make up over 40% of all insect species and around 25% of all known animal life forms.
