This little guy never took his eyes off me, as he munched his way around
this flower. Can you see the bit of pollen on his nose from his meal? Pains
me when I see people swatting at these beautiful iridescent creatures.

Nicely captured, Sandi. I remember catching these as a young boy and flying them like a powered kit on the end of a piece of light thread. Yes, they aren't the most graceful of fliers, but totally harmless. Now, I can tell you that Palo Verde beetles are even less graceful and have some really nasty mandibles that can deliver a pinch that will draw blond!
