The flower overwhelms the insect, but the image was intentionally framed to include the bug's place.

Dog bane beetle, named for the plant on which they are commonly found. I must try to relocate & rephotograph this one, which was out in my garden.

Dogbane is one of those plants I have to try to clear from my pasture, though there are lots of other places around my place it can grow. I've read that eating very little dogbane can kill a goat. Goats can eat all kinds of things that a lot of other farm critters would leave alone, but a few things can be deadly to them.

Dog bane and poke weed are two poisonous plants that grow around our property but there are no animals foolish enough to eat one. Fortunately there are no giant hog weed, although I think I spotted one along a paved bike trail, formerly a RRRoW. I went back a couple days later with a camera to photograph it, but it was gone. I suspect someone who knew the plant had ripped it out.

I stepped in poison ivy yesterday trying to check for insects. It was young growth so not oily but I washed carefully after my walk. I wish someone (with gloves) would pull it up. It is in a popular area of a park. I did see a looper caterpillar on a coneflower near there.

So far as I know most wild animals don't get dermatitis from poison Ivy the way humans do, and then over a hundred forty species of birds eat the poison ivy berries, and then distribute its seeds in their droppings. I find that I mainly am afflicted with the poison Ivy rash when I've been trying to pull it up in my yard.

Some people's skin seems to be immune or nearly so the the poison ivy toxic. BTW: if you did not know or never noticed, Virginia creeper likes the company of poison ivy, so if you see the former's distinctive leaves, be watchful.
