Two lady bugs.. or from the breed of the lady beetle family.
I purposely took the picture of the two of them on the leaf so you can judge its size. Though most of you already know the lady bug is as tiny as a fingernail.
Colour: Orange and black spots. Black Legs.
Habitat: A leaf on the tree in my cousins backyard.
It was a hot day of the long weekend.
Slimy to touch.
They were able to fly.
In the fennel in the butterfly garden
Since the weather was so awesome today, I spent the afternoon exploring this other park by Lake Worth.
Coccinella septempunctata, the seven-spot ladybird (or, in North America, seven-spotted ladybug or "C-7"), is the most common ladybird in Europe. Its elytra are of a red colour, but punctuated with three black spots each, with one further spot being spread over the junction of the two, making a total of seven spots, from which the species derives both its common and scientific names (from the Latin septem = "seven" and punctus = "spot").
