The fun friendly bugs known as Coccinellidae or Ladybugs is a beautiful insect part of the beetle family. There are 5000 different kinds of ladybugs around the world and about 450 live here in North America. Ladybugs, like other beetles and insects, go from eggs to larval to pupa until they become the Adult Ladybugs. Most children consider it their favorite insect. Ladybugs are one my favorites to photograph. They give a pop of color to the flower or leaf they are on. Check out some pictures ive captured since the beginning of this january. Enjoy!

This is some of the most beautiful nature photography I have ever seen. You have a great eye for light, composition, and pure aesthetic beauty. I am delighted by your photos of mariposa lily, ladybugs, and such that may not be on our planet for much longer. Thank you for pursuing your passion.
