Attractive unidentified blue insect living in burrows along the Continental Divide

The Domino Beetle (Anthia sexguttata) that sports six white dots on its black exoskeleton. They may look like a barrel of fun, but these bugs are far from it! Adults have the ability to squirt an irritating acidic liquid when its feeling defensive. If you were to get caught in the sizzling stream, you'd feel a gradual burning pain start to build on the part of the body that got sprayed. Numbness in the limb attached to the affected area can sometimes occur as well. Hooray!
