What an interesting but cute little creature! Great capture once again Kerri!

I too immediately thought "cute" when I saw this little guy. Another great capture for you.

What a gorgeous photo! He looks just like our own Lily Beetles - I took many photos of them last year. They are so pretty that I let them eat my lilies!

I was going to say, it looks like the kind of bug that eats our Lily's! Hubby keeps spraying them but they keep coming back. It drives me crazy. Over the past few years they've basically killed them : (

Nice shot though, Kerri!

I've never seen this kind of bug before. It's kind of cute. It looks like a bug you would find on a children's cartoon! A bug so cute must be beneficial! :)

Have a lovely day Kerri!

I love these happy looking fellows! I found one once and it took me forever to figure out what he was. GREAT capture!

Great shot! I've wondered about those little bugs, too. I see a lot of them in the summer in clusters at times. Would be nice to know if they are "good" or "bad" bugs.

Wow, that's a lovely little creature.

I am not sure if I've seen one even though I have plenty of lilies. That's a great close-up.

He's SO RED! I wonder if he's embarrassed?

Rick said...

Lovely little bug Kerri. I'll keep an eye out for them this summer - we've got lots of milkweed here. btw - have you ever smelled a milkweed flower ? Quite nice actually - like lilacs.

Excellent macro with good use of DoF.

Good grief Kerri, that is an amazing shot! The detail is so fabulous and the contrast! Excellent job!
