I am trying to post all my stored pictures to get ready for fall and winter shots. This way it will force me outdoors and to take new pictures. When I run out of options, I can go on new adventures! 🙂 So, be prepared for a mish mash of pictures over the next few weeks.
This is a Dotted Asparagus Beetle. They can destroy asparagus plants by laying eggs in the tips, the larvae feeds inside developing berries and eats away at the foliage.
It takes three years of growth before eating, we won’t be able to eat ours until next year. I will be on the look out for them next summer. Nobody messes with my asparagus! 🙂
