Instant Identification

.. I don't know if these guys are always this good, but...
Thanks to I know this is the larva of a lady beetle crawling around on my Hibiscus syriacus. I didn't know what to make of this thing at first: it looked like a caterpillar, but only from the waist down, because it also had six distinctive legs, unlike most caterpillars. I looked around at bug identification sites, registered at, posted this photo in the late afternoon, and less than an hour later, I had two responses that allowed me to identify it. Thanks you guys!
