[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This might be Trichalus sp., also called red shoulder lycid beetle.

Anyway, I took this under the hot sun (can tell by the shuter speed) while i was trecking up the boldy hill near Broga, 5 minutes drive from the Broga town itself.

There are no tree on the top, only beautiful rocks and tall skinny grasses.

Hi Kean,
Good image. Great bug. I like its colour.

Hello Kean,
Beetle on your picture belongs to family Pyrochroidae, easy to recognize thanks to their red colours of elytrae :)
Very nice and interesting picture! :)
