Colourful Beetle

I found this beetle crawling all over my white roses yesterday. As usual, I am not sure if he is friend or foe. Though with those jagged edges to his antanea thingys I am sure he could do some damage.

I found him very pretty though with that blue/green colour on his back and that bumpy texture. My mind is working overtime how to interpret him into textiles somehow.

It's beautiful, I follow the policy that nothing is harmful unless in plague proportions. The only terrible experience I ever had was with evil weevils.
