Mystery # 15


Calling All Detectives!
Can you solve a Mystery?

Guess who I am using the clues below. I could be a plant, animal, bird, tree, insect, arachnid (spiders), or amphibian found in Colorado. (Look for the answer in next month’s newsletter as well as a new mystery!)

From egg to larva to adult, I like to live on plants, but never do I eat them.

Tiny garden pests are my very favorite meal, so farmers love to use me.

When the breeze is just right, I open my back, spotted and bright, and the wings underneath take me in flight.

My favorite color is red, but don’t assume I am a lady.

Who am I?
