You look nothing like your parents

When I took a photo of this little critter, I was uncertain what it was.  I’ve seen these bugs all over the place here and often took note they were in large numbers along with the common multi-colored Asian lady beetles (a.k.a. ladybugs or ladybird beetles, Harmonia axyridis).  After a bit of investigation this morning, I’ve now discovered this is actually what the lady beetle larvae look like.  That explains why they’re often seen with the adult bugs.
