The whole body, including legs, usually a color or metallic-green, hence the name beetle, Greek Chrysos (gold) and mÚlos (member, articulation). This color can range from bronze to red. The underside of the body is darker, but always with a metallic finish. The shell has many small hollow points.

A minute but colorful beetle with a wonderful metallic sheen perfectly captured on an OOF green BG Sergio, Your exposure and focusing are right on the spot my friend, TFS indeed!

Hello Sergio!
The DOF is not perfect here, but I like that yuo presented another interesting beetle species. It is not easy to photograph so metalic and convex beetle as Chrysomelidae.
All the best from Poland,

hi Sergio,
really nice capture of this beetle, with lots of color and nothing blowing out. well done.
is that your reflection in the beetle?

Ciao Sergio,
mi piace molto TN, tutti dicono (pi¨ o meno in buona fede) la loro senza considerare se ci sono o non ci sono soluzioni alternative e soprattutto senza considerare tecnicamente come una fotografia Ŕ stata eseguita, penso che converrebbe limitarsi all'utilitÓ o meno per chi ha scattato la foto di una eventuale critica, se non potrÓ essere utile a risolvere problemi futuri Ŕ inutile farla. A me piacciono molto le tue foto quando fanno fuori dalle righe e per il mio gusto personale questa Ŕ una foto bella. L'unica cosa che ti continuo a suggerire, ma probabilmente dipende dai programmi che usi, Ŕ che sfrutti poco il limite di 200 Kb del file.
Grazie e complimenti.
