Lily beetles

No probs. I know these well as they and their bird poo mimic larvae are the scourge of my mother in Law's lilies... She lets me take photos of them - and the adults are very photogenic - but is keen to get at them soon after with the bug spray... And by the way, there's no need to revise the IDs once a number of agreements come in. If you agree, just click the thumbs up symbol and use the comments box for acknowledgements if you want to. Keep the pics coming!
