A banded jewel beetle with nitid blue pronotum
Feeding on flowering mallee gums in the Australian desert.
It's mum must have nitid it for it's visit to Melbourne ?? ;)
Wonderful beetle, Martin, and nice spotting, congrats.
Sometimes wildlife sightings are magical moments when they display bright and unexpected colors. This find was one such moment.
Nice one Martin! Thanks for sharing.
