Butch Ladybug From Hades!

by Jhet Bhlak on July 28, 2011

This has got to be the most enormous lady bug that ever existed! I’m betting it was the subject of some government experiment gone horribly wrong.

When I left for work this morning I noticed this thing hanging above my front door. I was about 15 feet away and it looked like a leaf or something was stuck up there. I figured no big deal and forgot about it until I got home.

Well when I was pulling in the driveway I seen it again and decided to investigate. Turns out it was this ladybug looking beetle that is about twice the size of a June bug. It got it’s leg stuck in an open part of the metal and couldn’t get out.

So I took a few pictures. Then I went inside and grabbed a plastic bag and a step ladder to go get it down. Turns out it was still alive so I put it on the ground and took a quick video before shoeing it off. I wish I would have gotten a video of it taking off and flying around. That looked pretty awesome.

A friend of mine actually found it on a website. It’s a grapevine beetle :)
