Good Morning All,

Looking for mushrooms when the sun caught this bug. Could not believe how Iridescent the colours in this bug were. So, had to take the shot.
Has anyone any idea what the bug is please ?.

Now those colours he's displaying certainly look like a warning. Super capture here with good detail and colour.

You've been sooooooo busy lots of super captures since my last visit. Like how you've done your showcase - impressive.
