A Big HELLO.......

........from Vic. to Tas. :-)

Couldn't have Mosura's Ladybird getting lonely!

This one was trundling around on my wall the other day. I actually moved it to my standard roses where it could perform its little functions in a familiar environment!

Don't you just love 'em!

Nice shot! Mine was half dead and it looks it too.

Nah! We know they roll up into a little ball when they think they are being threatened (particularly by a camera!!) :-)

I've got 2 records now. Harmonia conformis and Coccinella transversalis.

I'm going to be more alert when it comes to Ladybirds from now on. I'd like to know what is actually here and the "Ladybird" site is really helpful.

The "little ball" reference means they conceal all appendages when threatened.

They aren't slaters!!
