Leaf beetle macro shots

Tiny metallic green beetle

Unidentified Chrysomelid (Leaf Beetle)

There are over 200 species of Chrysomelidae (leaf beetles) found in the UK, but I hope to be able to identify such a beautiful looking specimen.

I took a ‘few’ photos of this little fellow climbing along a twig. Due to his diminutive size and my lack of flash or tripod, I ended up taking a couple of hundred shots of which only four were properly focussed!
