This metallic blue beetle faked death when it suddenly saw me and it falls into ground onto its back and pulls its limbs and antennas and becomes immobile for a few seconds and gradually returns to its normal state.
Every year during this season these beetles comes to my garden and lands on Calotropis gigantea (yekke gida- in kannada), today I got to see this again a male and female in yekke plant hope to see the colony soon (•‿•)
