Backyard, sycamore tree leaf
Thanks RiekoS and EmilieChich!
It is amazing that such ugly larva transforms to a beautiful lady bug. Thank you Jopy for educating us who never saw the transformation.
That is the best way of learning!!! :)))Great advantage of being a teacher! :))
haha my kids love biology, especially when i take them out of school and have teaching in nature, by the sea or in mountain...the most of mine spottings were found school kids :)
That is so awesome! :))))
Jopy is our hero, she is educatting the new generation of biologists so she is important to the world :)
Yes, I'm teacher of biology and chemistry in elementary school :)
Jopy, you're a teacher and you're teaching biology? :)
No problem, I will send them to you with pleasure :D your tree is banquet for ladybirds, they are useful for biological control of aphids...
Oh send the kids to me, there is a sycamore tree in my garden which has been full of aphids since spring and it has attracted so many ladybirds that there are so many larvae on the leaves.
I'm getting better and better with insects hahaha me and my school kids tried to find ladybirds eggs or larvae but without success...
Wow you rock, it's exactly the same one :). I also spotted the 2 spot ladybird, today :)
