Scarlet Lily Beetle (Lilioceris lilii)

As with the previous post, here again I was lucky to be able to isolate the background, providing room for the subject to breathe. Though this beetle is generally hated by gardeners, I was rather impressed by this little chap.

  2. I regret to admit that a few of these have found themselves between my fingers. Even so they do make an excellent subject. Well shot Tim.
