This may be a stupid question, but if the object in the OP's image is a beetle, wouldn't the wings be flapping so fast that they would only appear as a blur?

With regards of the graduation in the colour of the wings, I suspect this may be because of the limits of the camera's processing of the image.

Magpie maybe judging by the colour, don´t know if you get these in Hawaii but I´m sure theres other weird and wonderful birds with similar colours.
