I went out with the intent of finding something to fit this week's theme and luckily I came across this orange lady bug on an orange what I take to be a dahlia.

It was morning and the lady bug was sitting on the flower probably warming up for the day's acitivies.

The news this past week brought this interesting tidbit.

According to Health Canada, Asian lady beetles were brought to North America in the 1970s to control crop-eating insects. But entomologist Taz Stuart told CTV news that unlike ladybugs native to North American, the Asian lady beetle has been known to bite.

"They look like a ladybug, and at this time of year they're coming in from the crops and the fields, and now looking for a place to stay over the winter and hibernate," Stuart said.

The only way to tell these lady bugs from our native ones is a M-shaped marking behind their heads and from the look of this lady bug one would say it is one of native lady beetles.

Super bright Jan and a really well timed effort with the orange ladybird as we call them down here.
