06-27-06. Lady Bug Look-a-Like on a Tiger Lily.
I spotted this on my walk around the neighborhood tonight. I'm not sure what the bug is, but I know it isn't the normal lady bug that I usually see.
I'm sure someone will comment that they would like to see the whole stamen of the flower in focus, but this is about as much depth of field as I could get. I was already stopped down to f16, and my flash was probably firing at full power.
EDIT: I did a little research on the bug. I guess it is a variety of lady bug. It is the Coleomegilla maculata or the 12 spotted lady bug. This is just a different variety of the lady bug that I'm not used to seeing.
