Halyzia sedecimguttata

Dutch name: Meeldauwlieveheersbeestje
French name: Grande coccinelle orange

2007 was the year of the Asian Ladybirds, there were also a lot of aphids. 2008 was the year of Orange Ladybirds. There were plenty of them in October on the birch bark and I could enjoy the entire evolution of these insects from egg to imago.

On the picture we can see the colour transformation of the pupa and the fresh imago.

By the way - this dutch name is wonderful - I had to try it several times to spell it ;-)

Hello Marie,
Great montage showing Pupal and freshly-emerged imago stage of this H. sexdecimguttata. Each image is sharp and well-taken and it is interesting to see how pale both pupae and imago are before the pigmant develope and to see the imago drying out its wings after emergence.
A great and well done contribution and TFS!
Cheers,
Ivan

Bonsoir Marie-Christine,
Une métamorphose tout à fait étonnante! C'est une excellente idée que tu as eu là. Encore fallait-il avoir les petites bêtes sous la main! Mais sur tes bouleaux il y a de la vie!

Hi Marie.
Happy New Year and all the best in 2009 especially many-many new wonderful shots and posts. Brilliant collage which presents the key stage of life of the cute insect. Technically pictures are also great. Bravo. Well done and TFS.
Alexei.

Un excelente documento Marie y de gran belleza por lo bien resuelto que esta el tema del color.Es bonito disfrutar de las variantes de las diferentes especies y esta me ha sorprendido por su diferencia con otras cochinillas semejantes en forma pero no en colores. Excelente !
Un saludo: Josep Ignasi.

Ciao Marie Christine,
bellissimo collage ed interessante documentazione dei vari passaggi catturati con straordinari dettagli, si apprezzano molto bene anche le tonalità e sfumature dei colori su BG neutro.
All the best to you and your family for a Happy 2009.
TFS.

Bonjour Marie-Christine, je suis impressionnée et comme j'admire ta patience et ton oeil! C'est fascinant, cet ensemble de photo, je n'aurais jamais cru qu'une "coccinelle" puiss avoir l'air de ces petites choses noires dans une phase précédente. Merci de nous montrer cela, j'apprécie et adore!
