These beetles were quite small. For scale, look at the aphid on the underside of the reed. They were near a pond outside Dolores, CO.
Thanks DoinaRussu :)
very good details and colors, great shot!
Thanks AshishNimkar! The shell looks right (for a Cereal leaf beetle), but the body seems to have a different texture and color. That's closer than I've gotten to an ID though...
Thanks mymadi. :)
speechless... thumb up bro...
Thanks! I especially liked these beetles because of their metallic shells.
beautiful macro shot!
