Dogbane beetle

While out weeding, I found this pretty little dogbane beetle (Chrysochus auratus). My photography skills don't do it justice - it's more beautifully iridescent (like an oil slick) than the picture shows it.

If you want to see a really nice picture of one, check out this link:
Update: tried to get a better picture when I saw another one yesterday...
A little better but still not expert photography by any means.
