[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the same Sternocera aequisignata from the Buprestidae family of beetles known as Jewel Beetles which I had presented in last post.

While I was taking its closeup photo the Shiny reflecting surface of the Beetle also captured the Photographer right in the act.

No wonder in ancient India these Beetles were used in Jewellery.
