Under a canopy of leaves I found this unidentified iridescent blue-green beetle attracted to the vibrant coloured pendulant bracts, of striking red with yellow and green tips, of this exotic tropical bloom Heliconia Rostrata (hanging red lobster claw), still in the early flowering stage.
Image taken early November in my home backyard garden, near Innisfail, Far North Queensland, Australia.
