Just found a bug in the garden I couldn't place.
Took some shots then after googling found out it's a Ladybug in it's early larva stage.

Enjoy - Ronny

oh almost forgot - k10d + kiron 105mm - 1:1 macros

Hi Ronny,

That's really neat! -- an interesting bug indeed -- but to think that it'll "grow" into a ladybug. . . now I CAN see a family resemblance -- but I would never have guessed.

Bug babies -- not as photogenic as birds and mammals. . . but interesting nonetheless. . .

Nice job both photographic and identifying it.

Scott

Picture?

Nice capture of the larva, Ronny. I have seen them before, but never this close!
