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! ;):)
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.
#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.
''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''
so glad your spring is so close!! Ours won't be for months. I'm so jealous!

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
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. :)
