Garden pest

Found this little chappie laying little red eggs on my lilies. Sorry picture not very clear. I identified him on google he is a lily beetle. (must be a she I suppose as it was laying eggs). Apparently it also likes fritillaries so I searched those and found another. Couldn't see any eggs there though. I remember seeing one last year on the fritillaries and wrongly identified it as a cardinal beetle. I will have to be diligent now so they don't destroy my plants
