Lost Ladybug Project

Coccinella septempunctata
Yesterday afternoon, I found this seven-spotted ladybug (an introduced species from Europe) while surveying our milkweeds in the Meadow. As a contributor, I submitted this photo to the Lost Ladybug Project, a citizen science program conducted by biologists at Cornell University.

I'm not sending in photos to LLP (yet!) but you do have me counting the spots on all the ladybugs I'm seeing here as part of attempting to chronicle most of the visitors we are getting. So much fun!

I've submitted images to the LLP for....yikes....several years. It's cool because you can go to the LLP website and search images by contributor name.
