waw! beautiful beatle,well done.
you show a brilliant and sharp frontal view of this bug. Colours and reflectance are nicely reproduced.
The insect stands out well against the uniform and smooth background.
The insect you show is not a beetle but a Heteroptera bug from the
family Scutelleridae with some 400 species world wide.
I don't know the exact species identitiy but it looks like Chrysocoris stolli.
'fartash' posted a similar specimen to TN earlier.
Best wishes, Peter

lovely macro shot, the oof dull green bg offers good contrat to the colorful jewel bug, the metallic shine looks so beautiful, precise dof and sharp focus, the overexposed patch at the back of the insect could have been cloned out,
well done and i am looking forward to more macro shots from you,
tfs & regards

Thank you for your kind words on my recent butterfly picture.
I notice you are shaping up with the gifted school of nature photographers in Bangalore.
Great opprtunity to learn from people like Goutham, Satish and Murali.
Your image of a Jewel Bug is very attractive all in all. The colours are natural and good to look at. Maybe the focus has gone a bit soft at the rear.
I also like your POV.
Keep shooting and all the best.
