Lady Asian Beetle on Yellow Parsnip

The prairie of Glacial Park was teeming with an abundant presence of Lady Asian Beetles. Within this landscape, one could spot the growth of wild parsnip, a plant known to flourish in numerous states, such as Illinois and Wisconsin. However, this species is not native to the region, originating from Europe. When handling wild parsnip, it is advisable to wear long sleeves and gloves, as its sap reacts to UV light and can induce an unpleasant rash resembling a burn on the skin.
