In high school many, many years ago :( one of my favorite subjects was science amongst others.
It's actually quite interesting to learn about this tiny little bug. I learned a long time ago from watching "Bug's Life" that just because they are call ladybugs doesn't mean they are all ladies. But did you know that there are about 500 different kinds in the United States alone and nearly 5000 world wide. If this little guy or girl wouldn't have landed on me I would have never known that they come in different colors other than red. In fact after doing some research I found out they come in yellow, orange, gray(like my little friend above who is actually called "ashy-gray lady beetle" or Olla v-nigrum), black,brown and even pink. They all look beautiful! I must say that their larvae and pupae is not as great looking as they are once mature I would think that if you have never seen them in that stage of their life you would probably confuse them with an ordinary bug. I love that my oldest and now even my youngest will ask to research things on the Internet when we don't know the answer to something. I'm so happy I'm not afraid of technology as I once was; confused and frustrated sometimes YES but enjoying the learning experience.
