Rarely Seen

My neighbor was showing me her plants when we came across this bug. Not sure what it was, but then I got an email announcing that we were to have an entomologist at our Master Gardener meeting next! Unfortunately, I was going to be unable to go since I have class during that time. I did snap some pictures of this are below. Do you have any guess as to what it is? Since I couldn't go to the meeting, I asked if the entomologist could ID this bug for me. Are you ready for the answer? It's a rare is the pupal form of a ladybug! So if you see these guys hanging around your garden....DO NOT kill them! :D Made sense since we found two near a patch of aphids...their favorite food!
