Ladybird Larva
Comments(9) # Ladybird Larva london e10

At the risk of being accused of bringing you more Doctor Who monsters, here's a little ladybird larva I found in the garden yesterday morning. Less than a centimetre long at this stage though they do finally end up almost twice that before pupating and then emerging as an adult ladybird. They're actually more voracious eaters of aphids than the adults so always welcome to see! Canon EOS 40D
