Yes that's right Ann - very destructive insects. They actually made those holes in the seed pod - didn't have the heart to spoil the moment.Smile

Thanks

However maligned they may be, Brian, they make super subjects for photography, and you prove that.
Have a UA from me.

The Headgardener collected 15 off one plant of these lilly beetles and put them in the dustbin as she will not kill them !

Grand shot.

Delighted to be #30 Brian - should have been way beyond that point by now!! Brilliant pin sharp detail of the two performing Leaf Beetles and terrific textures on the nibbled seed pod. Timed and composed to perfection. Just love that title too Grin

Excellent detailed macro. After I uploaded my red lili beetle image and was informed of their appetite, I swiftly sprayed them...lots...and hope they never return...appreciated them posing for me though Grin
