Lady Bugs on the ceiling
Originally uploaded by Dr. Agonfly.
In the Spring or Fall, when there is an unseasonably warm day, we have what my family calls a 'Lady Bug Day'. sometimes it will be a dragonfly day as well, but the Lady Bugs are more obvious. I noticed them through our kitchen window mid day, and forgot until I went into our bedroom, to see this on our ceiling. We are used to them, as for years there would usually be a half dozen or so Lady Bugs handing out in a corner of the ceiling all year long. They don't usually get in the way, and eat other less appreciated bugs, so they are welcome to stay. Besides, since I usually try to capture and release any insect or other living thing that makes it's way uninvited into the house, I'd have my hands full with this mob. And yes, today was unseasonably warm.
