Wild Parsnips

These six petaled flowers were hard to distinguish but were covered with mating red beetles.  It appears to be wild parsnip or wild celery ( Angelica archangelica ).  The flowers themselves are very small, so they almost look round when the petals are still folded up.  You can see the paired beetles all over the place.
