Argus Tortoise Beetle (Chelymorpha cassidea).JPG

This Argus Tortoise Beetle (Chelymorpha cassidea) reaches the end of the leaf and has nowhere to go except pose for my camera. The background turned out quite green and muddy with different degrees of color halos, so I cloned much of it out. It was already in front of a nice lush background, but now it looks much cleaner.

    Really nice. Is it about the same size as a lady bug?

      Thanks, no it's about twice the size of a ladybug and just as active.
