Lady Bugs!

This morning at 8:00am my mom found a Multicolored Asian Lady Bug ( Harmonia Axyridis ). These little guys are more common then you think! They come in many different colors and patterns, hence the common name and are often confused with other species of lady bugs because they're so variable. To tell if a lady bug is a Harmonia Axyridis you need to look at the "shield" covering it's thorax. If you see a black "W" marking on it then it's a Harmonia Axyridis. Pretty cool huh? Any way after a while of looking at the fella I let him go. Other then that nothing else that was interesting happened today. I also went to see Dr. Grodberg 2 days ago. ( See my other blog for details ).
