striped leaf beetle
We were here last year but never saw these
little guys.  Once we discovered them, it was
pretty easy to spot them in the midst
of the weeds.  © Carol Davis 8-5-2018

striped pajamas
You can run, but you can't hide if you're decked
out in stripes - even if you are a little dude.
According to Wikipedia "both adults and larvae
 are associated with the false sunflower species
 showy goldeneye (Heliomeris multiflora)." It is
native to North America.  © Carol Davis 8-5-2018
