Golden Buprestid

RSCN8566

I found this guy hanging out at my cabin. I was attracted to the intense metallic coloring of it's outer shell. It's a Golden Buprestid beetle (Buprestis (Cypriacis) aurulenta). It was about the length of my thumbnail. Picture taken with my Nikon CoolpixS8100 on Macro mode.
