[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Bolivia autumn has just started. And looks like this season for the insects world is mating time. For that reason I started a small series of this subject , starting with my previous post.

I normally go picture hunting to a park near my house, where the vegetation is very dense. There I found this trio of very small beetles. Hard to tell who, is who. But I like how the one with the dark head got in the middle.

If I am not wrong, these might be a Jewel Beetle.

They can normally be seen feeding nectar on flowers in bush during a sunny day. Some Jewel Beetles are leaves feeder. They ranged from very small to very large size. Their body is elongated and flattened. They are brightly coloured and often have a metallic sheen which make their common name Jewel Beetles.

Hi Gabriel,
Hey what are they doing? I didn't understand! Are they mating? If so, Which is the male? Which is the female? Or they are doing a collective work to get the nectar of the flower? Anyway this is amazing photo my friend. Congratulations,
Ersin
