Wild Wildlife: Are You a Good Bug or a Bad Bug?

“Why, I’m not a bug at all!”

In fact, this is some kind of bug, but I have no idea what kind it is, nor whether its designs on this daisy are benign or malevolent. It’s very photogenic, though, so until/unless someone tells me otherwise, I’ll call it a good bug.

{A note: I do write all text and take all pictures. Please do not reproduce either without my permission.}

I'm not sure what species but would be tempted to say 'it' is 'they' i.e. two of them on their sides ... and possibly a species of/related to the ladybird (some are white with coloured spots).

You might care to look at my Ox-eye daisy insect (also unidentified!) here.

English daisies. Maybe it's an English bug? Or one trying to look as if?

Wow. I have never seen a bug like that one before.

@Caroline: thank you for the suggestion. In blowing up the image, I'm pretty sure it's a single unindentified bug--but it does remain unidentified. It's definitely less stunning than *your* unidentified daisy beetle, though!
