A reflectively coated beetle - you can see the house reflected in its upper carpace.
I took this shot prone on my tummy as he/she crawled on the concrete outside the house.
Its a leaf beetle btw :-)
A different perspective of another leaf beetle can be seen here.
Apologies to all for my relative absence from flickr of late - life has been hectic with exam marking and the collation of marks and also colloquia & chemistry camps to organize and run :-)
