Lichen a bug

Another lichen, this one on the edge of a leaf. Check out the bug above it. The outer shell is completely transparent.

the bug looks sort of like a small frog inside a plastic bubble, the eyes are huge and clear looking also.

Hello Steven. Love the lichen and the bug. It looks similar to what we call a Fool's Gold Beetle (Aspidimorpha tecta) or Tortoise Beetle. They belong to the Crysomelidae family if you want to look it up.
