These two asian ladybird beetles, Harmonia axyridis, are disturbingly similar in appearance in the thin December sunlight of my parkway strip. One cruises a milkweed, the other was found on a seedling acacia. There are lots of aphids (aphis nerii) on the milkweed plants but none apparent on the acacia.
Harmonium what forsook sustenance on thin leaf. Pragmatic's fair twin.
