Beetle Close-up ~ Macro Monday

I'm passionately involved in life: I love its change, its color, its movement. To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings - it's all a miracle. ~Arthur Rubinstein

A very colorful beetle - not sure of the ID - seen last summer 07-14-11- Deerfield Trail, Blacksburg Virginia

Fantastic photo, quote pairing! The colors are amazing on this beetle and you have captured them beautifully. A wonderful way to start my day, viewing your awesome blog!

I love the close-ups of these colorful beetles! There's like a translucence or something that is just amazing! What's even more amazing is to think that the birth of a baby from the womb, and the creation of a bug in all this resplendent color, is all from the mind of the same God. He cares for each in his loving way. Good to think about today.
