Daloa and the Amazing Technicolor Shield Bug

On September 18th, while I was still living in Daloa, Côte d’Ivoire, I walked out into the backyard and spotted the prettiest little bug I’ve ever seen. In a couple days I’ll post a bunch of critter pictures from my six months in Côte d’Ivoire, but for now here’s the Technicolor Beetle Shield Bug (turns out it’s not a beetle, but a “true bug” called the Rainbow Shield Bug, Calidea dregii)
