Chrysomelid beetle on Acacia acinacea_Gold dust wattle

This is a Chrysomelidae, leaf beetle - not sure of species (there are estimated 50,000 species) on a wattle (acacia) flower. This gives you an idea of size.
Very color!! Amazing color!!

@photographycrazy @koalagardens Thanks for your comments. I hadn't realised wattle flower-balls start with lots of individual compartments, until I looked at them at this scale.
