Orange Blister Beetle

Mylabris Pustulata- Orange Blister Beetle
Mylabris Pustulata- Orange Blister Beetle- Ganesh Puram, Tamil Nadu

No no this beetle doesn’t give you a blister- however, it literally devours flowers. Even as I watched I saw a few beetles eating their way through flower petals. I can’t deny they make great photo subjects though!

    Wow, it’s really intricate!
    Hmmm…about the Beetle-Good & Bad alike,but they’re just behaving according to the unwritten rules of nature.

      Oh I wasn’t complaining- of course they do what they need to for survival. Just that you think it’s a bad thing when you see beautiful flowers being eaten up but everything has a purpose 🙂

        I wasn’t pointing at you accusingly either:), just shared what I had in mind.
        I can compare it with a Wedding cake which is too beautiful to be cut (but after all, it has to be eaten)! Isn’t it?
