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.

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”
