Lost Ladybug Project

Since January 2009, I have contributed photos of ladybugs to the Lost Ladybug Project, a nationwide survey being conducted by Cornell University that uses citizen scientists like myself. While out in the Meadow today, I came across a ladybug. So I caught her and went back inside the house for my camera. After I took some photos, I let her go....
Seven-spotted ladybug (Coccinella septempunctata)...a European species introduced to North America in 1956.

Another found January 17, 2013.
