Macro Monday: Ladybird/bug


Monday 18 January, 2016 by Uncle Spike

Depending on where you are from, you’d know this as a Ladybird (UK), or a Ladybug (US). Here we call it the Uğur Böceği (Lucky Bug), and this is my Macro Monday image for this week. Hope you all enjoy it!

    I like that photo, too. In Italy, they’re considered a “porta fortuna”, literally “it carries luck”.

    I approve aphid killers, but when ladybirds swarm they have been known to bite humans! The UK has now, apparently, an invasive ladybird species which — like the grey squirrel — is ousting native species. Can’t remember its colour (yellow?) or number of spots (fewer?!) so wouldn’t know how to recognise it, sadly …
