Another pretty beetle – nog zo’n mooi kevertje

This beauty is a member of the leaf beetle family, I think it is the Chrysolina cerealis, but I am no expert so I could be wrong. It was difficult to get a good picture of this beetle because there were so many grasses and leaves around him. When I finally managed to get a unobstructed view he was refusing to look at me and showed me his backside. Well at least it was a very colourful backside.

Deze schoonheid is lid van de familie van de bladhaantjes. Ik denk dat het de Chrysolina cerealis is, maar ik ben geen expert. Hij was moeilijk te fotograferen omdat hij zo tussen de sprietjes en blaadjes zat en toen het uiteindelijk lukte hem goed in beeld te krijgen wilde hij enkel nog zijn achterste laten zien. Maar het was natuurlijk wel een hele kleurrijke achterste.
