This sweet Ladybug was hanging around my door, but I thought she might be happier eating aphids in my garden. She was easy enough to catch and place on a plant; however, she was not cooperative during the photographic session. She kept crawling under a leaf, hiding from my lens.
Ladybug! Ladybug! Fly away home; Your house is on fire, your children all gone; All but one, and her name is Ann, And she crept under the pudding pan.
Did you say this poem to Ladybugs when you were a child? I did. If you want to learn facts and lore about Ladybugs, go to Mrs. Seagraves wonderful website.
Note: One spring, Tall Husband and I bought a bag of Ladybugs to help us with an aphid problem. We carefully followed the instructions for releasing them onto our plants. I guess they hadn't read the instructions, for they all flew immediately to our neighbor's garden.
