Foreign Invader


Photo Information
This is a Red Lily Beetle. The species is not native to the UK, but has spread rapidly as the climate has become warmer. These little chaps make a hell of a mess of the lillies in our garden.

K-5, Sigma 50mm F2.8 Macro, Flash with home-made diffuser.

Good shot David, what you need is Wilkinsons own brand of bug killer spray it works really well about 1.89, but only spray late evening to avoid killing any Bees etc. Ill post a shot I took with the I-10 of the little red devils.

Super close up, i hope i don't find any, apparently they just drop to the ground if they think they are in danger so it's worth looking down there, they maybe hiding.
Kind regards Maria
