La llamada vulgarmente "mariquita de siete puntos" (Coccinella septempunctata) es la especie de mariquita más común en Europa. Tanto los adultos como las larvas son feroces depredadores de pulgones, lo que las convierte en animales extremadamente beneficiosos para el control biológico de plagas, llegando en algunos países a comercializarse.

Se conocen alrededor de 6.000 especies diferentes de mariquitas, de las que 111 especies están presentes en la Península Ibérica.

Hola Nicolas,
.. long awaited .. another nice capture for my THEME on Coccinellidae! o.k.?
A nicely composed picture with beautiful colours and a well-focused ladybird couple.
Best wishes, Peter

Truly LOVE BUGS !!!!

A very nice shot .. you may want to crop out the left side where the green stick is .. Then there will be more focus on the bugs ..

Encuadre estupendo. Buena disposición de los insectos al poder verse muy bien la cabeza. Atractiva por el colorido y contraste.
