I have to admit I didn't recognize this as a ladybug because I've never seen a striped ladybug before. I thought it was
some kind of leaf beetle. It was just hanging out in the grasses in full view on Antelope Island.  © Carol Davis, 7-8-2012

Paranaemia vittigera
Most ladybugs eat small insects like aphids and this one is no exception. July 8 was a good day for me because I found
four new species and I didn't shoot many pictures - too much wind in the afternoon. What a day!
