The Gold Bug

The first time I buy sweet potatoes and see what I get with it. It is such a cute bug that I couldn't help but do its photo session before leaving it out in the wild. It is the 'Golden Tortoise Beetle', feeds generally on morning glory and sweet potato leaves. It can change the colour of its hood from transparent to dull red.


  1. Gorgeous this guy is ya! :)
    Why don't you make a clipping of our 'snail' also? Wasn't it nice?

  2. yes that's a good idea :) the snail was so cute too :)
