Interesting. I need one of those cameras. :)


RE: Lady Bug

Very nice but did you know that there is a co-existence between an aphid and an ant that the Lady Bug has to try to get around.
The Lady Bug likes to eat aphids. The aphid secretes honeydew which the ants like to eat. The ant gives protection to the aphid--why not, he's feeding him.
But the Lady Bug is hungry and when he tries to attack the aphid, the ant attacks the Lady Bug. The ant and the aphid live together for mutual benefit.
That's called "symbiosis".

RE: Lady Bug

Neat! I never realized that a ladybug had its wings so carefully folded under its carapace.
