MACRO MONDAY: Ladybird larva Munching

Have you ever wondered what a ladybird larva looks like while eating an aphid on someone’s thumb nail? Well, wonder no longer! I’ve been posting about bugs for a while now, but our eyes are not macro lenses, unfortunately… or fortunately, really, because the stuff we would see that we think are cute look horrifying close-up! It’s incredible. I hoped that we would be able to capture an adult ladybird doing it… it would give us a very clear image of how much of a predator they really are! Click here to see an image of a larva from far away… pretty, aren’t day?
