    Default The pollen master

    ID: Pumpkin beetle

    With loads of wild pumpkin plants along the path and several bright flowers blooming around, we could spot loads of pumpkin beetles all around, feasting on their favourite blooms. One such beast was this tiny beauty that was covered right from the antenna with even tinier pollens, though usually very shy creatures, this particular one, for some reason, was least worried with me approaching and encroaching into its space, trying to frame it, helping me to get a pretty close shot of the beauty.

    Image shows nicely how pollination takes place, its covered with pollens . The low angle looks good. Good details in the eye. Thanks for sharing.
