Macro Friday: Spotted Cucumber Beetle

I got these shots at the Clifton Court Forebay
This little green ladybug is actually a Spotted Cucumber Beetle




I am linking this to Macro Friday at Blogging from Bolivia.

He must have mistook the chain link from a cucumber. LOL.

Love his black polka-dots on the lovely green. But I bet you wouldn't want him on your cucumber plant!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I found one of these last fall on a dandelion and had no idea what it was. My pics are kind of blurry because it was so busy and did not sit still. Great macro!

love how the green pops off the rust. These little bugs hang out in my garden so I always plant extra.
