It is not a bug! It is a ladybird .... hang on, it is not a bird either, is it? OK, so it should be called a lady beetle. That should keep the entomologists happy.

GrandmaK said...

Darned if I know, but the pictures are great! Cathy

Colleen said...

It's adorable... that's what it is! Great shots!

Kala said...

Great close-ups of the little bug!

Bom said...

I don't know what it is but those are cool shots. Where did you find the bug?

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

I guess technically they refer to it as a beetle...dunno really. But I do know I love your photos!!

My macro photo is questionable...is it a TREE SERPENT?

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Wow...great captures!

Elizabeth said...

Maybe it's a gentlemanbug instead; he is rather odd looking, but you captured him beautifully!

Laurie said...

Ladybug, ladybug fly away home ... great shots.

I love ladybug shots! It pops against the purple! :D Nice shot!

jay said...

Thanks, DBM! LOL!

Sweet - yes, most people in the US call it a 'ladybug', and over here in England, we call them 'ladybirds'. I love the variety of colours and patterns they come in.

That last shot is really cool!

Looks like it might be a slightly immature 'eyed ladybird' ; http://www.ladybird-survey.org/downloads/Ladybird%20descriptions_Info%20pack_2006_v.1.3.pdf

Of course ~ it could be an altogether different brand! :D

Looks like one to me, but whatever it is, you have done a wonderful job of photographing it!

I like that its head has a checkered look to it.

These are Asian lady beetles. We have had them in the house they are a Beetle. Unlike Lady Bugs we know as the red ones. These Bites and pinch, they also give of an fowl odor when crushed. In warm weather they comes out in large groups.
