Very nice range of colors captured in this photo! Did you notice the distorted image of yourself reflected in the elytra Bev?

Thanks for your comments, Jim and Lynette. Yes, Jim, I did notice my image reflected in the elytra, but not until the photo was up on my monitor! Also neat to see the reflection of the sun which was over my shoulder. It certainly was a beautiful insect.
