May 20, 2012 – Protector or Predator?

Initially I thought that this ladybug looking beetle was preying on the lone egg, and then I went on Googling to find out whether or not this ladybug looking beetle is a ladybug (I didn’t think so, but it looked like a good place to start) and then I found out that this is called “Asparagus Beetle” (now, who would have thought about that!!! – it always hang out on the asparagus)  and the lone egg is the asparagus beetle egg.  I guess, this it is a protector after all.
