Nice close-up! 🙂
She is the feature on a Vegas slot machine. Oooh, when that screen is full red wings…
I don’t know what to say, Carl, except … Jackpot!
we call them ladybugs in the States.
I know, Richard. Easily recognisable, though. 🙂
I like your insect close up!
Thank you. 🙂
aw, beautiful!!! good luck ladybugs. 🙂
We call them Ladybirds in Australia, but I noticed my American internet friends call them Ladybugs too (as FeyGirl said).
I consider Ladybirds as a Good Luck symbol. I love seeing them on plants, but I don’t see them often these days.
This is one of the good ones. We’re seeing an alarming increase of an invasive Asian variety that has many more black spots. It’s good to see one of these again.
I will start calling them ladybirds. That is so much nicer than ladybug. Lovely image!
I think so, too. Ladybug sounds like a pest to me, whereas ladybird sounds like an asset.
