Friend or foe?

I spied this insect on a tomato plant and am wondering whether this crazy-cool summer has made the insects mutate.


It’s ladybug-size. And I have seen a good number of baby ladybugs feasting on my aphid smorgasbord lately. But it wasn’t until I got this pic with the closup lens that I was sure of what I was seeing. So is this a ladybug or some evil marauder?

    It’s a baby ladybug turning into an adult ladybug. I have those all over my garden as well.

    Oh, cool! I’ve never seen this stage of development before—those awkward teenage years, eh?
