Who would have thought that this ugly bug would turn into a beautiful little ladybird
Certainly having a good munch on the leaves Carol, good macro work
I don't know how you can even spot these tiny little beasts Carol, nevermind get such good shots. Amazing and the first time I've seen a ladybird caterpillar (?)
You certainly know your bugs and where to find them Carol! Another well composed and detailed photo, I especially like the curve in V2.
Carol this is brilliant I've never seen one of these so thank you for sharing it with us
Good macro image of an ugly bug.
Thanks to your great photography you have just answered a question which I have been wanting to ask for so very long.
Superb and thank you Carol
Never knowingly seen one
Amazing who would have believed it turns into a ladybird.
Never seen these before Carol. But then you do have an eye for these small beasties. Great images.
Nature truly is amazing Carol.....great images
Not ugly at all Carol, just the spotty youth version of the ladybird! Lovely shots.
I'd never thought about the beginings of the little ladybird - great nature lesson in this one. Superb images Carol.
Good shots as usual, Carol.

Would never have known this is to be a ladybird!
Great macros Carol. wish we saw more ladybirds here.

If this is as small or smaller than a ladybird then WoW, that is amazing. Both great shots.
