Reminds me of a cross between a long horned flower beetle and a lady bug. A very colorful creature here arlon. :D

That is a really nice looking beetle, especially with that green thorax, thanks for posting something i have never seen before. And a great shot.

I have to put my sun glasses on for that bright yellow. Excellent shot Tim. Great DOF. They are very common in my vegetable garden during the summer.
