Stevens Point, Portage County, Wisconsin, USA

This was taken at about about 9:00 AM. I couldn't get a shot of the dorsal side of this little guy, he flew off shortly after this picture was taken. I don't quite recall whether the dorsal side was that neon green/yellow with black spots or black lines. I'm not really sure where to begin looking to identify this one.

Moved from Diabrotica.

Spotted cucumber beetle.
This is a spotted cucumber beetle, not often photographed from this angle:-) I think the genus is Diabrotica, family is Chrysomelidae.
