Spring Has Sprung


7-spot Ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata) – I have seen quite a few of these around the garden, and no doubt the sunshine and elevated temperatures have enticed them out of hibernation. Good news for the garden. This one was in the hollow of a curved leaf. Double-click image to enlarge.

  1. I love Ladybirds. To me, they’re as good as a four-leaved clover and ‘lucky’. Don’t know why. Maybe it’s the child within that loves these beautiful little insects.
    In all my years of flower photography, I think I’ve only seen a couple though.

    • I have always loved ladybirds froma young age, too. I am very fond of them, and the old saying my Mom used to say when one landed on you. ” Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home. Your house is on fire, and your children are alone.” Somethings you never forget 🙂
