I have a friend staying at the moment so blog time is limited but I thought that this evening I would just post a quick picture before bed. We have lots of Ladybirds/Ladybugs around at the moment. In this case an Elevenspotted Ladybird. These were introduced from England in 1874 to help control aphids. It's now common in New Zealand in gardens and orchards. In its lifetime each ladybird cane eat 1000 aphids!
