Blister bug or Black-Red beetle

This beautiful creature was spotted by Nilesh, a biker-friend from Pune, at the Hampi's Elephant Stables.

The six legged insect could be a "blister bug" or "red and black striped beetle." I'm not sure what the correct name is.

An early morning exploration of Hampi's wilderness will yield lot of interesting creatures... insects are generally less active in cold weather, so capturing them would be easier.Once the sun is up and air is warm, insects become more active and more sensitive to movement around them.
