Nothing says spring like LADYBUGS! and flowers!
A few weeks ago I saw the most ladybugs I've ever seen in one place in my life near my office downtown. We looked them up online and found that they were mating. Now are seeing the larva on the walls of our building & they are developing their wings.
It's been fun to watch the circle of a ladybug's life. They sure are ugly in the larva stage. You wouldn't think it was going to turn into a beautiful ladybug.
