Why not have a thread for Beetles too? So, who is this little critter? I found two of them on the dried out runner bean pods.
Thanks Hazel, all taken with a Panasonic DMC FZ50 most were taken in 2007.
EDIT And I still have the camera up and running :)
That's an amazing collection of bugs Jim and lovely close ups, some scary looking ones lol

It is a Harlequin Hazel, info easily found on the net and i'm sure I have seen one of these myself.
Just bumping this back up for an ID; I'm not sure what it is Paul but could be a Harlequin which are on the increase. Hope the experts can come up with the ID for you.
I found a lot of ladybirds on the pavement outside the College this afternoon. Mostly they were 'standard' markings, but this one stood out. Can anyone ID it?
good idea for a thread :)
Well done on the ID Wendy, & good idea for thread MC but you'll have to change it to Basically Bugs as Shieldbugs aren't Beetles!! LOL
Ta ... you know the address! Lol
