Ladybugs in the garden


I often see ladybugs at work in the garden, especially the front yard, and I feel so lucky.

Usually they are the Coccinella septempunctata, sevenspotted lady beetles.

Those cute little creatures are helping keep aphids under control.

In the image above a ladybug is in the center of a lambs ear plant.

And here is a ladybug on a Navajo fleabane flower in the late afternoon.
