Yesterday’s weevil may not have been cute and attractive but I think we can describe today’s subjects that way.
Dogbane Leaf Beetles- Chrysochus auratus are promiscuous beetles mating constantly during their lifespan. I saw several paired up like this, although in this case not quite hooked up, on the small stretch of plants where I visit them annually.
Their elytra are metallic, shiny, colorful, and often reflect their surroundings. Here reflecting the photographer as well.
