Man Finds an Amazing Glinting Beetle Which is too Stunning to be True

In Costa Rica, a man called Michael Farmer noticed something that made him stop to check it while walking around his property.

He saw something that looks like a metal but moving!

It was on guava’s tree’s leaves, so, he assumed that it would be an insect.

After picking it up, he knew that it was Chrysina limbata, a species of scarab beetle.

Luckily for Michael, he was able to take some great photos of the beetle and its awesome shell as it played dead for a long time to prevent any harm.

Michael said that it was one of the most beautiful things he has ever seen.

That was the first time Farmer had encountered a beetle like that, but he hopes it’s not the last.

“I’m not much of an insect person,” he said. “[But] I’m still amazed by it. Can’t wait to see another.”

“[It] was like a mirror. Utterly flawless reflection in the beetle,” he said. “Truly one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.”

“I don’t believe in selling living creatures like that,” Farmer said. “I put it back on the tree, and it rapidly flew away.”

You can see how clear like crystal the beetle’s shell!

Michael was kind enough to let the beetle be back to one of the leaves and it directly flew away!

Michael added that he is looking to see some more this species of beetles as he is still amazed by what he saw despite not being a fan of insects.

How beautiful!
