Holly Berry Bug

This ladybug — sans any spots — was photographed at the Mission Hills Nursery and Garden Center in San Diego, Calif. Like its spotted kin, this ladybug belongs to the Coccinellidae family of beetles; The insects' spots and bright coloring serve to warn predators that they taste bad and are poisonous, since they can be toxic to some animals.

Its unique antennae, which resemble reindeer antlers, are the beetle's primarily organs of smell. The beetle can also use its antennae to feel around its environment.
