Not native to the US. There is a ton of this in agricultural areas in eastern Oregon, and escapes along roads.

Description

Took this in the Sutton Mountain WSA, an area near the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Monument. About the size of a lady bug, which is what I first thought it might be. Never got to see the head - flew off while I was trying to make a lens change to my macro. My guess is that it is a type of carpet beetle, but I'm not at all sure. I'd also like to know what kind of tree/bush we are looking at here. This was growing in a dry stream bed at the bottom of a ravine.
