[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one is from the family of Leaf beetles (family Chrysomelidae), a large family of beetles, get their name from their dietary habits.

They are the vegetarians of the beetle world, with adults and larvae consuming leaves and other parts of plants, including trees.

As such, Chrysomelidae commonly get labeled as agriculture and garden pests.

Other leaf beetle species have evolved to become consumers of a single plant or plant genus.

Leaf beetle species usually share the physical characteristics of having an oval, brightly colored body with antennae smaller than the body.

If some one knows the exact name of this one do post it here.

Thanks for your candid comment on my recent picture. I appreciate it.
Your picture of this insect (Blister Beetle) is fairly good, even though I would have preferred a bigger image of the subject itself. You could have cropped the segment behind it. The universal practice in image presentation of this type is that we leave more space in front of the subject than we do at the rear.
All the best to you.
