It is amazing that such ugly larva transforms to a beautiful lady bug. Thank you Jopy for educating us who never saw the transformation.

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.
