A shiny silver bug that reflects the light?  That's a new one.   Come on Mr B you can't be serious.

Are you suggesting it was an ET bug then?

Yes, I am very serious, actually. No ET required.

If you can produce a picture of a light reflecting bug that resembles the Crete photo that would be useful.  No challenge intended.

I'll see if I can find one. In the lab right now, so I don't have much time for extensive searches, but I'll definitely take a look around :)

I just did a search for the kind of thing that we photographed.  Compare this to my picture:

I really do think that Zoser's picture looks like something more distant than a big on the lens, and the same is true for the picture in Crete.  These do look like more distant objects in reference to other points.

Here is one:

And other image of the same beetle, now in silvery color also:

Link.

Those are from Costa Rica, but I wouldn't be surprised if such or similar existed in Greece also. That said, I am by no means inferring that that is what the image depicts. I just see it as an option.

Once again, in looking at the picture, I just do not think the object in Crete was that close to the camera.  I just don't.

Check out the video in this link.  Near the end one of the beetles takes flight...  Notice the blur...  at the correct angle, we'd have a pretty decent match with the Crete picture in my opinion.

Enjoy

Unlikely with it being so opaque I would have thought.

It looked something like this only rounder and with the points less predominant.

That is fair enough, I respect that. To be quite honest, I have a hard time deciding myself so I am just keeping my options open.

That's the culprit.  It's amazing how we can all be so easily fooled by these things.
