Coccinella septempunctata aka seven-spot ladybug

All right my dear photobloggers, Ladybugs as well as the butterflies are the best sign of spring uh? ;))
I found this one in my bedroom window from outside. I took it, took some shots, and set it free!
They are so cute! ;):)

beth0110 wonderful shots Ricky. glad you set it free :) love the angle of the 3rd shot

stabeez As McMommy says, we have plenty inside, so you would be well blessed at our house. We love seeing them outside though as they help to reduce some plants which have come to our country and become a problem.

poshrat #4 seems just about perfect to me. I wonder if you have the children's rhyme in Portugal 'ladybird, ladybird, fly away home, your house is on fire and your children are gone'? We used to chant it as kids - don't know why - it's rather horrible really.
poshrat · 2011-02-25: 16:21
onlyricky @Poshrat: Yes we have =)
it is like this:

''Joaninha voa voa,
que o teu pai está em Lisboa
Vai te dar uma sardinha
Para a joaninha '' ;))
which is like (in case you don't know portuguese):
''Ladybug fly fly away
Your Dad is in Lisbon
He will give you a sardine
For you Ladybug''
;))

MsCumberdale Great macros, I really like the second one where you can see the details so well of the head! :)

wfrnk Too bad DOF is so narrow... I guess we can't stack when they're alive and moving... :-)

RayNvb I like the last shot. I hope this is a sign of a fast approaching Spring, I love Spring almost as much as Autumn.
RayNvb · 2011-02-26: 04:25
Saipanhohhot They really are cute and your photos show that.
Saipanhohhot · 2011-02-26: 05:03
Jarvo Brilliant. Spring must be getting close - I found a little beetle this morning.
Jarvo · 2011-02-26: 06:16
jet28 Wonderful!
jet28 · 2011-02-26: 06:37
????? so glad your spring is so close!! Ours won't be for months. I'm so jealous!
????? · 2011-02-26: 10:45
ArtBee Spring has sprung indeed! These are fantastic macros Ricky! I have these ladybugs coming out all over the place here....they overwinter in any crack and crevice they can find. When it warms up a little .....out they come....along with the stinkbugs.....which I hate....haha
ArtBee · 2011-02-26: 11:23
????? What's spring? I seem to have forgotten after the last two weeks with temperatures around -20C. Can't even remember when I last saw an insect! It's a strangely white, cold and sterile world I'm living in at the moment. But it can't last forever. :)
????? · 2011-02-26: 15:04
????? So cute.
