I sent these photographs to Bugguide.net for help with identifying the creature behind the Ladybug. The full exchange is here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1171759
As you can see more than one entomologist commented. A predatory stink bug is attacking from the rear and a parasitic fly egg from the other end (the white bump by the head). As one of the entomologists noted that you have to feel sorry for the beetle under siege from both ends. Bugguide.net is the best place to go for answers about your insect photography, specifically taxonomy.
