Ray: This one is about the size of your Ladybugs, Lisl...the fennel flowers give some indication of size. I like Brian's idea of parking Maureen in the picture for scaling purposes, but Maureen is not available at this time...nevertheless, I could suggest that this Ladybug is approximately one half of the size of the nail on Maureen's pinky finger.

She is not easy to photograph as she is always on the move...Ladybugs are like that, too! smile

And she will never know she has, by in so doing, created a work of art..
Ray: I love Ladybugs in the garden, Chris.

Oh wonderful! The ladybug has much to do!
Ray: She is very busy doing useful things, Philine.
This could have featured in Tiff's picture today
Ray: I don't think Starlings eat Ladybugs, Bill!
Magnifique prise de vue ...elle merite bien sa place cette coccinelle travailleuse..Merci
Ray: J'adore voir ces charmants et durs coléoptères dans notre potager, Claudine ... ils sont toujours engagés dans des activités utiles.

It looks perfectly at home but oh so tiny.
Ray: These ones are very small, Alan.

On dirait une coccinelle mais sans les points noirs.
Ray: Oui, Martine ... une Coccinelle sans tache!
I have not heard of a. Euro spot before Ray, my education flourishes.
Ray: Stay with me, Chad...your Eddycashun is in good hands!
We have them on this continent too. She certainly stands out in this background.
Ray: They seem to like the fennel flowering heads, Mary, so I have had a few goes at getting a pic...not finding it easy, though, as the beetle is constantly moving, the flowers catch every little breeze, and so focussing is a challenge.
A terrific close-up image Ray.
she must be a hybrid Ladybug Ray... good one....petersmile
So lovely, isn't she!! Wonderful shot, Ray!
Tiny!
