Lost Ladybug Project

I found this ladybug yesterday afternoon in a wheelbarrow filled with rainwater. I thought for sure it had drowned. But nope, it was still alive! Picture, please, for the Lost Ladybug Project. Then I set it free on a milkweed loaded with aphids. Meet a parenthesis ladybug (Hippodamia parenthesis), a native species. Asian lady beetle (Harmonia axyridis).

Double win - the ladybug was alive AND it was a native rather than an import. Good spot and a great shot!
