Spotted Lady Beetle

Coleomegilla maculata lengi


Members of the Coccinellidae family of beetles, ladybugs (or lady beetles as preferred by some scientists) range from 1/32 to just under 1/2 an inch and are most commonly scarlet, orange or yellow with small black spots on their wing covers. The legs, head and antennae are usually black. Over 5,000 species of ladybugs are found all over the world with more than 450 native to North America alone. Source:


A ladybugs natural habitat is all types of vegetation that harbors its food, other insects and their eggs. Source:


I was walking through Ring Park in St. Charles MI and noticed this beautiful little creature on top of a dandelion and thought it would make a beautiful picture. I spotted this beauty on my 1 year anniversary with my loving boyfriend, this made the day even more special.
