[Dogbane Leaf Beetles have a deep sheen of iridescence that changes as we move in relation to the insect (or by the way it moves relative to us).  Dogbane Leaf Beetles feed on prairie plants, such as the Milkweed plant.  Dogbane Leaf Beetles can avoid predators by giving off a foul-smelling secretion when they are touched.  An insect with a very splendid sheen of metallic-like iridescence!]
