    Not an entomologist, but that's a pretty sweet picture! Nice shot (if it's yours)...

    Thanks, I did take them. I was set up much better to shoot the flowers than the bug, but it turned out alright anyway.

    Re: Dear entomologists,

    Not an entomologist, but looks like it could be an asian beetle?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Dear entomologists,

    My initial reaction is that it is a cocinellidae, or ladybird, or ladybug, beetle. But, I've never seen this one before. My i.d. Gooks are at my office, and no quick luck on the Internet. There are over 450 Species in North America. Sorry.

    Re: Dear entomologists,

    Ummm.... I'm out. Asian lady beetle probably of some species.... Harlequin ladybird....possibly.... Not a corn, soy, wheat, cotton pest that I am familiar with



    I agree.... Great photos! What type of camera?
