But here’s mine!

I give you Harmonia Axyridis….

"I am indeed very smooth!" said Harmonia haughtily!  "See my shining curves, my softness and the sun twinkle on my shell!"

“I am indeed very smooth!” said Harmonia haughtily!
“See my shining curves, my softness and the sun twinkle on my shell!”

Harmonia stared at me, straight in the eye and said, "I particularly like sitting on bramble leaves as the tiny hairs tickle my underside in a very favourable way!"

Harmonia stared at me, straight in the eye and said, “I particularly like sitting on bramble leaves as the tiny hairs tickle my underside in a very favourable way! Now please take a long distance shot and catch the beautiful sky while you’re at it!”

What else could I do but obey!

"Can you still see me?" shouted Harmonia.

“Can you still see me?” shouted Harmonia.

Now I present a little information about this lovely ladybird!

It is commonly known as the harlequin ladybird . It is also known in North America as the multicolored Asian ladybird, and as Halloween ladybird. In Japan, it is not generally distinguished from the seven-spot ladybird which is also common there.

When the species first arrived in the UK, it was labelled as “the many-named ladybird”, because among the names listed were: multivariate, southern, Japanese, and pumpkin ladybird.

Anyway enough learning and on with the photos….

Harmonia is a little hot and finds a little shelter!
