[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Harmonia axyridis is a ladybug, sweety, Sprocket, sarantontón ladybird or the family Coccinellidae: native to Asia; that has been introduced in North America, Europe and South America in order to control aphids, family Aphididae. It has been widely reported in all these regions and continues to expand. Unfortunately it has become a pest in many parts where it is not a native species; invades into houses in the fall looking for a place to hibernate and negatively affect populations of native ladybugs.

Hello Hernan,
A wonderful close-up image of this pretty Ladybug. You managed to capture some excellent detail of not only the insect, but also the unusual looking plant that it is on. Is this a type of hemlock?
Your notes are quite accurate about the ladybugs getting into houses. They congregate in large numbers in the fall here in Ohio, and at times are a real problem when they get into homes.

Ciao Herbnan, great macro of lovely ladtbug, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
