Lol Kelly and thank you!! When you find a group of Ladybird larvae it is quite easy as they hang themselves up and complete the process in the same spot. The last time I found them was about 15 years ago when I had a film SLR so I was not able to compile them like this. It only takes them about 8 days to metamorphose. Viv

I knew this was yours just from the thumbnail. Besides the clever presentation the clarity of each photo is brilliant. This could be a page in a bug encyclopedia. Well done, my friend. Thumbs Up!

Super compilation Viv, I didn't know they had so many stages to their metamorphosis.

You get a 10 and 6 smileys for this one. Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile
Great job. I suppose it was just naive of me to think that the lady bug just gave birth to little red pellets with legs. I am further educated from seeing this. Thank you.
