Look what I found on Flickr


A boat named ladybug. Mine is inexplicably named Lady Bug; I've never known why, Camille just said ladybug and I went and made it too words with a capital L and capital B. Either way, Lady Bug is not alone. She has a doppelgänger. Well not really, but a boat with a similar name.

Your boat's in good company. There's a boat named "Lady Bug" that's a regular in the summers at Heron Lake, and it's one of the prettiest boats out there. It's actually a newer fiberglass boat, but it has the lines of an older, classic, wooden boat.

In England we call ladybugs ladybirds. Just saying.

Wow

The ladybug is the state insect of Massachusetts. Just saying.

A ladybug can eat 5000 aphids in a month. Someone must have counted.

Carol Anne said...

Nifty critters, ladybugs. They're in the same league as praying mantids.

curiously, praying mantids will not eat ladybugs...too bitter.

O Docker said...

What are the mantids so bitter about? They have a pretty good life.

LOL

You have to ask why we are bitter? A whole life spent in prayer and then to have your head bitten off by the first female who puts it out for you...

Wouldn't you be bitter?

Zen said...

Monty: sooner or later it happens anyway.
