We've not yet planted beans; this beetle was found in one of our flower beds.

Don't kill them, Donna. That's a Ladybird species - very useful critters.

Maybe your internet connection is better than mine and you can check the enclosed link for the more than 400 species in 58 genera in North America.

Thank you so much, Ursula!!! And we just snapped his picture and let him return to the flowers. :)

BTW, we found our guy the very first time we visited that link: Lady beetle - Coccinella trifasciata
