A ladybug that's who.
At first I thought it was so cool to find this brightly colored ladybug in the cactus. I started photographing it from far away, and then I moved closer and closer and the ladybug did not fly away.
I finally realized it had gotten stuck. Dave of Costa Rica Daily Photo was present for the rescue. He took a toothpick and ever so gently kept working the ladybug out of the cactus until it flew away. It was very tired from struggling to get free and the problem was it could not open its wings to fly as all of the cactus spines were preventing flight.
