Last week I photographed the pupa of a ladybird for the first time….I had never seen one before….It was AMAZING!
Meet Lincoln Ladybird Larva who’s wondering if that’s his dad on the top of the nettle!
Lionel Ladybird Larva is enjoying a moment sliding down the nettle! Well if you can’t do it when you’re a juvenile ladybird, when can you eh??
Leonard Ladybird Larva is wondering if he has taken the wrong path in life what with all the prickles he’s encountering!
And finally….Lucinda Ladybird Larva who is a bit of a free spirit!
Now…look what these little larvae will turn into…..
Yes….that’s a ladybird pupa!
…and this is Lionel Ladybird Larva looking at his future, or is he turning his back on it??
And, of course, here are the beautiful creatures they turn into…..
Lionel Ladybird is just taking a little longer than his friends to hatch out!
