Asian Ladybug (Larva & Pupa)
Great find. It's very unusual I think to have these two stages of life of the lady bug on a leaf at the same time and in such good quaility. I like this, really well done. Hilarious, introduce a pest, then introduce another pest to get rid of the last one, and so on, and so on. Have a fine day.

Intersting and well presented picture showing two different stages of developpment of the Asian Ladybug. I had noticed these too and I found out later the same as you. I like especially the little pupa which looks like a little car. I have a picture in my archives somewhere, where they are several of these parked cars on a leaf.

Excellent macro shot of these lady beetle larva with great clarity & sharpness.
very good observation too. Well done & TFS.
New to me Ron. A fascinating study for a couple of old Boy Scouts eh? Not sure how the leaf likes it...hmmm.
