The Beetles

These two species on non-native beetles congregate together in the winter. Bother are very common in agricultural areas, the multicolored Asian lady beetles (all the orange ones) feed on aphids and the cucumber beetle (the green one) feeds on various crop plants in the gourd family. I spotted this collected on them on a sand dune at the edge of Lake Michigan.
