“Jewel beetle”

The hottest time in the region. When I was watching the mushrooms growing from the humus, a green shining insect flew by my side. It was the jewel beetle. It perched on a branch near the ground and began to climb it. It climbed little by little, pointing its legs fluttering. When it reached the tip of the branch, it spread its wings and flew away.  [JULY 2021]
