A hint of pink

I think this is the first carpet beetle I've seen since this summer, an unusual state of affairs. He didn't want to stay around for photos, but I tempted him with a slice of cranberry.

Stopping to investigate ...

"Thanks, but I've got places to go."

At least I caught him with his wings half out. Is that pink on his back his true colour, or a reflection of the cranberry?
