FINAL GATHERING

LADYBIRD

COCCINELLIDAE

Known for their voracious appetite of aphids, ladybird adults are often seen, but their larvae less so. Their larvae are a far cry from the adult form, though their shape is characteristic. These larvae have just hatched from the eggs, gathering one final time before they disperse.
