Ladybug Beetle chowing down on aphids. You go girl!

And if you see one of these...they're a friend too! Larval stage of the ladybeetle and very hungry!

Thanks Lyn & K!
Glad these are the well behaved type of ladybug of our childhood and not those new vicious ones that bite!

Oh, I can’t see those uploaded images.
I guess, I’m the only one who can’t see it. :(

Hi Adam,
Sorry about that! My photos have an expiry date when posted on forums-lol. If you want to see the ladybug photos they are on my zenfolio photo site starting with this one. http://bit.ly/N1KIni The whole series is there. :-)

Best wishes, Carol

Hi Carol,

Just checking the link now and everything is lovely. Did you take these pictures all by yourself? If you're the one who took it, you really have an eye for photography (and I really mean it). Thanks for sharing it with us. :mrgreen:

I don’t have any aphids in my garden... maybe haven’t seen those tiny ladybugs friends doing overtime work while I’m away. :lol:

Cheers,

Adam
