Groundselbush Beetle

A new species on my list!

While at first concentrating on photographing a wasp, I see some iridescent colors reflecting in my viewfinder. When I put the camera down, I saw many, many, many of these caterpillars crawling on the leaves.

This is the larvae stage of the groundselbush beetle. There is not a whole lot of information about this beetle that I found on the internet.

Such a beautiful coloration and again reminds you of how awesome and incredible nature is.
