I found this rather goulish looking bug in the garden. Fortuantely it sat still just about long enough for me to get a pic of it.

Any clues as to its name?

other feedback welcome.

Possible it could be a Scarlet lily beetle. Not a good bug to have around if your growing lilies.....

Good close up though

Startling perspective. Good macro but I agree, if you like lilies get rid of the beast!! Cheers..Andy
