pink jewel beetle - beaded brooch by trovelore
Pink jewel beetle embellished brooch pin by Trovelore.
Jewel beetles or metallic wood-boring beetles reflect light, showing off some brilliant, glossy, iridescent colours. But what is really surprising is their ability to detect flames of a forest fire over 80 kilometres away, where as they are the first arrivals in an inhospitable environment, they escape any predators in the smouldering barks of burnt trees.
