we're having fun!
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Actually they're not having fun at all. This is a ladybug hybernation gathering.|
The ladybug is a very useful garden insect since both the adult and the larvae feed on afids.
The septempunctata species is the most common in Europe. Septempunctata means "sevenspotted". The actual number of black spots on the ladybug's elytra.
The elytra are not the actual wings of this bug. They are the hard casings that protect the real wings.

this caught my eyes, quite interesting how the ladybugs assemble to hibernate together. Very nice capture, POV, details and sharpness are very great.
ha! I have just learned something So I want to thank you for presenting this photo AND the Note!
How does the "head cheese" get to have a cave all to him- ort herself?
