Aquatic Leaf Beetle
Plateumaris

leaf beetle
Beautiful Plateumaris in the bushes along the river below Jordanelle Dam near Heber City, UT.  These are skeletonizing
leaf beetles that live off aquatic plants.  As I was trying to get more shots of this little guy (or gal)  the grass slipped out of
my hand and he went sailing to grasses unknown.  Everyone needs a vacation. ..  © Carol Davis, 6-15-2008
