Eastern Bumelia Borer

Plinthocoelium suaveolens


It has amazing colors, which my camera did not pick up - metallic green and orange. It sparkled bright gold, like a hummingbird's feathers. In fact, when we first saw it, we thought it was a hummingbird. When it flies it’s wings are a very bright green and when it turns to the side, you can see the flashes of orange.
