Oh how I love this photo!
Brings back memories of when I found June bugs, tied a string around their legs and watched them fly over my head. Worst part was trying to untie the string. I had forgotten how beautiful the colors were....thanks for a wow pic.

Wow. 'Made me go in search of a photo I took a few years ago of a shiny bug. Once I found it, I had to post it: link.

Joanna... the bug you photographed is (I believe) a Fiery Hunter or "Caterpillar Hunter".

Hey, Rick. Thanks for the info. I had no idea what sort of bug that was. I remember when you posted your "dead bug" series. At the time, I did not remember my shiny guy. Memory is an odd thing.
