Umbrella for a Bug on a Rainy Day

I enjoy a walk in the forest on a rainy day because the life-giving waters make all of the leaves appear so vibrant and full of life! During this-morning's walk in the rain along Diahoga Trail I paused to make the acquaintance with some insect neighbors hanging out on the underside of a leaf. When it rains, us humans are not the only ones who like to take shelter. Here's a pic of an umbrella for a bug on a rainy day.

For those interested, I believe this to be a beetle in the genus Poecilocapsus on the leaf of a teasel plant.
