Collops balteatus

Collops balteatus

April 6, 2016
I was taking pictures of ladybird beetles on Texas Thistle, when this beetle ran along a leaf further away. Shoot first, id later. Similar colors, so I thought it would be a different lady bird, but was not. These are cropped to less than 10% of original image. Got only these two shots before it ran back under leaves. Could not relocate.
