Macro Monday

I thought I would stick with the animal theme this week but this time is is minibeasts as my kids like to call them. First up is this friendly little chap we found on the way home from school one day. I think he is a Garden Chafer.

Secondly is this harlequin ladybird - bad ladybird really but I let him be as I really need him to eat all those greenfly.

  7. Aaah, beautiful!!! I agree, looks like a Garden Chafer! And as a FYI, here in the UK, while harlequins are indeed 'bad' ladybirds, the ladybird people say they are still beneficial insects and should not be harmed. :)
