The Fennel patch hosts the Ladybird through its whole lifecycle.
The main image peeks in on an intimate moment of Ladybird lurv.
Then there is ovipositing:
The egg hatches and a strange-looking bug [larva] emerges:
and proceeds to gorge on the aphids that are also being hosted by the Fennel:
then finally pupates for a few days:
until it is time for the emergence of another fully formed Ladybird, which will eat Aphids and look for lurv:
