I’m really curious what sort of beetles these are. If you know, please share in the comments. The first was so cool – it looked like an Asian Beetle, only with a clear bubble over its wings. I must have used 100 clicks on it.

Edit: It appears the first is called a Golden Tortoise Beetle, some info here, and as seen in south India, here. The yellow and black beetle is a Cucumber Beetle, so today’s mystery is solved.

    • That is so funny, Sandy. I love that you call it a space craft, because that’s how I was describing it to my husband. “It’s like, a ladybug in a bubble, or a spacecraft!” 😉

          I looked and haven’t seen any information about whether they’re common in India, and if they’re not, I want to know how yours got so far from home!
