The larvae are such strange looking creatures compared to the beauty of the ladybird itself. I don't know how you know it's a 7-spot ladybird larva....?

Have to agree with Ann. A strange looking larvae for such a pretty ladybird. But then, aren't they all! This looks prehistoric. Superb shot.

A storming close up Brian, it does have a prehistoric look to it. It's hard to believe that this ugly little critter will turn into a pretty little ladybird

Nice detailed shot Bri. 1st time i have seen Ladybird larvae. A bit like a caterpillar with long legs.

EPZ is an amazing place for various reasons...and here's one of them: the learning of things.

I have never seen a ladybird larva before, and this upload - other than being an utterly gorgeous capture - is an education in itself.

Ta, Brian, and kudos on a great shot of this little fella!

Good work here Bri........I haven't been out for a while, not too good health wise, so as yet haven't seen any. Wouldn't have minded getting this little beastie under the MP-E for a stack though......Well done mate.

Seeing at this rather horrific looking critter you would expect summat yeucky to evolve.........Mama Nature is soooo clever.
