Looking At Insects. #9 Ladybug.

Hi everyone! Here we are with another interesting insect to enjoy. Yes, I know they are not called ladybugs, but it seems that most people know them by that name, at least here in N. America. This particular one is a bit more unusual than the orange and black that we are used to seeing. The name of this one is “Two-triangled Ladybird Beetle”.

I wanted to get a pic directly from above to see that better, but it would not let me do that, so this will have to do. These ladybird beetles can have variable designs on their backs but the color combination is always the same. They tend to prefer wetter areas such as around ponds. These are also a native ladybird beetle, we have about 7 or 8 native ones in our area. This little one is smaller than the typical ladybird beetle, at about 1/8 inch (3mm) long. Have a great day and God bless!

  1. I love these pictures. Insects are both beautiful and bizarre. I phot lots of them on plants. I am fascinated by their delicate beauty and engineering but having read ‘Pilgrim at Tinker Creek’ by ? the insect world is beautiful and brutal. Just ask the male Preying Mantis!!

    • Thank you so much! Yes, I find insects to be quite amazing. Like all of nature, there is the beautiful side and the ugly side, but each has a purpose. But there is such an amazing variety and some very beautiful insects, like this tiny ladybug. Have a great day!πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ΊπŸ“·
