It would have been nice to catch this convergent ladybug at the top of the flower, and although I tried, it proved impossible. It seemed in a great hurry to get to the bottom of the plant, one wonders why it did not just fly off.
Ladybugs are beetles and like all beetles they have wings hidden under a divided carapace. The numbers of beetles is staggering, one estimate says that one in four animals is a beetle.
It’s hard to hide when you are bright red on a purple plant. The vibrant colors caught my eye, as did the rapid movement of the beetle. It was a great reward for the time I spent on a very humid day with my camera.
