This little guy is one of the most beautiful bugs I have ever seen. We found him on the 4th of July and thought he matched quite well with the occasion. He posed for some pictures and then we took him outside and he flew off into the night. Any idea what kind of beetle it is? Thanks,
This is a Leaf Beetle in the genus Calligrapha. We believe it to be Calligrapha serpentina based on a BugGuide image.
