Danger around every flower

I love the smell of Yarrow. Even though it is a non-native plant, I can understand why someone would want it around.

This one had a customer the other day; a beetle of some sort. I had to refresh my memory on the differences between a beetle and a bug; it could have been one or the other in my opinion. Turns out it is a beetle since its wings meet in the middle of the back---ah yes---now I remember what that professor told me a couple of years ago in that naturalist class!

This beetle is headed for danger that is easier to see in this up close view; in the natural world a danger lurks behind every flower.
