First thought this was a lady bug but as I got closer it turns out its a leaf beetle-Diabrotica undecimpunctata or a spotted cucumber beetle. #365Project Day 274 (2010.10.01) @sharkbayte

fantastic colors and lighting.....
so well camouflaged!
This is very nice! I like the light, colours and angle.
Nice shot, but are you sure this isn't a cucumber beetle?
Looks like a cucumber beetle to me, but what do I know? You just taught me how to "capture" these little ... bugs. I've been shooting from on top; I've got to get off to the side. Nicely done.
