Such lovely and striking creature.
Love the photos.
Vibrant red and glossy black makes these very beautiful.

Great pics of the Lily beetle but you can probably say goodbye to your lilies now :-(

This is one of Okllahoma's red colored beetle, the Red Milkweed Beetle. Very photogenic.

Give them time, give them time.

Lovely captures Brian.

Our lilys seem to have escaped this year but we lost some really nice plants a few years back.
