One of the most beautiful of all our Beetles IMHO, and one that you have captured wonderfully. The iridescent colours providing a wonderful injection of bling...

Incredible colour you've captured Carol.
Wow - just wonderful - they are so small that the detail you have captured is amazing. He seems to be coping well without the extra antenna, he's certainly in glowing health!!!!
Excellent Carol,
