    Can you find a picture of a Lily Beetle on a Lily?

  • Love the shield bugs - they're really pretty. we get lots of the little green , quite plain ones here. Squished lots of lily beetles at ex husbands house recently which were on a lily he bought this year. Really infested with them- the lily looked so awful. Could have had a field day with a camera there Gilly!
