    Three friendly ones, Lady birds, I suppose there are a few Gentlemen birds as well but they don't get mentioned very often, if at all. Three different species also.

    I have always liked Ladybirds,..there was and probably still is a children's clothing brand named Ladybird,..also a children's set of books of the same name,..they are always a welcome sight to see in the garden.

    I love the dragon looking larvae. These adults sure show the variety of species.

    They don't look much like mom at this stage.
