Pleasing Fungus Beetle

Languria sp.


I really wish I would have seen this when I was there, but I noticed this metallic blue bug when I was going through my pictures. As you can see it's on a type bracket fungi. There appears to be some type of liquid coming out of the fungus with the bug may have been feeding on.
