Sure, it's just a tarsus.

But whose tarsus is it?

I'm hoping that this one is a tad more difficult than the cicada face, but you never know...

This will be a hard one Rik...I`m going to say it is from a beetle and then I`ll guess "A ladyBird Beetle"? or a bee???

Beetleman, good guess -- it is indeed some kind of beetle, but not a LadyBird.

Any other ideas for what sort of gorgeous beetle might have such fancy footpads?
