A Ladybug

Ladybugs overwinter as adults.


My first ladybug of the year just happened to be on a purple trillium in my spring wildflower garden.

It must be either the pine or the hackberry tree that’s dropping all the pollen.

Ladybugs overwinter as adults. Here’s a picture I took March of 2012 in the bluff at Stone Face. This definitely wasn’t anywhere near all of them!

    I just noticed my name on this site. It was supposed to be lover not liver. Oh well, I think I will leave it alone. As long as I live, I will care about trees and nature.


  3. I have a white house and they usually swarm all over it in spring, but not this year.


  4. Lovely shots.


  5. Beautiful shots, I overdosed on Trilliums last weekend, they were everywhere on the river. I found purple,yellow and even a varient in white… 🙂


  6. I’ve never seen as many lady beetles in one cluster as you show in your last picture. What fun.
