Flowers seem to attract aphids. I love having a garden, but I hate the little pests that come with it. However, the ladybugs are breeding in our yard and they like aphids, so I love ladybugs. Here's a ladybug and a larva.
I'm sure all of you knew that they have multiple stages. Here's a photo of 3 of their stages.
In the center is a little larva (yes, that little bug), down between the blades of grass are two shells from the pupal stage, and there on the right is a little ladybug that has just come out and doesn't have her spots yet.
A photo of three in the pupal stage, attached to our tree. We took this photo this morning, and this afternoon, one of these had hatched.
We are homeschoolers, so everything becomes a lesson around here. One of my boys came in and drew this picture. His info isn't quite accurate since you really can't tell the boys from the girls by color, but I took a photo of his drawing.
I hope your weekend is wonderful, and you're able to enjoy the glory of God all around you...even the ladybugs!
