That is about the shiniest green bug I have seen! Is it some kind of beetle?

A very shining metallic green.

Wow.. you spot an alien for real! See.. it has a sleek green body and big round black eyes and stick-like limbs.. the very definition of an alien! lol

Amazing capture K. Never seen a green bug before.. and a one this glamorous.

Wow! Looks so glamorous.

Could have been better if the focus is on its head I guess (I know it’s not a easy task to focus on a tiny bug like this one:)

Loshini said...

His feelers are a bit weird, no? Interesting macro by the way!

Knatolee said...

So vibrant, it doesn't look real! It's gorgeous.

Yes it is a beetle. But dunno who painted him with such an attractive color :)

Absolutely, superb paint job by Mother Nature!

I agree with you. Those antennas are communicating with the moon Pandora. Should be the first time he landed from outer space. :D

¡Muchas gracias! Thanks very much!!

Yep, should have been much better if I could get that view. I tried to get one from the front but he flew off :)

Yep they are look like some kind of a high tech communication device :)

Yep, must be a star in the bug world. :)

Kirigalpoththa said...

Glad you like it. Yes it has a great glossy finish :)

Wtih those attractive colors he can be the ruler of their worls ha..hah.. :)

Green color house? Not a very common thing. But I too like green color on houses.

Yes this is a surprise addition to my photos from Alagalla. Glad you like it. :)

Yes he is worth of giving a bit of popularity through internet for his attractive color :)

six legged trishaw. :D May be cos we have so many green bajaj trishaws here.

Thanks all for your comments!

I like the shiny green color. And I noticed the antennae too. I've seen them like that before, but on a different bug.
