Lost Ladybug Project

Seven-spotted ladybug (Coccinella septempunctata)
While we were standing in the parking lot after church, visiting with a friend, I happened to spot this ladybug on James' car. I was hoping it'd be the elusive nine-spotted species but nope, not this time either. It's the seven-spotted ladybug. Awhile ago, I shot a photo of it, then let it fly away. Then I uploaded the pic to the Lost Ladybug Project, which is surveying ladybug species across the U.S. It's a cool project! I've been contributing to it for several years now. Check it out!
