Bug With A Face Mask

I love the variety of different Bugs in the UK .

This one is a particular favorite of mine.   Ever since I looked close up after taking the picture I then noticed patterns on it back that resembled a face mask….

I am unsure what the species is, but I think its great.

There are quite a few types of beetles and Bugs in the UK that have what looks like a human face on their backs (wing cases)

It may be to scare off predators or just a humorous coincidence….
