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.
