    I have been waiting very patiently to get this series of shots. Yesterday the time came and I happily clicked away. Later when I downloaded the pictures they were all blurry.......I had forgotten to turn the VR off on my camera. Then I found another pupa and had it all set up. A friend came over for lunch and I took a break from watching it. Next thing, I go out and the ladybird had emerged. Go find another pupa......this time I got lucky.

    The Pupa
    Ladybird1.

    A whole lot of shaking going on.

    Thanks Carol. Sorry, I should have said Ladybug. In South Africa we call them ladybirds.

    Will it stay yellow or turn red?

    Carol, they turn red with black spots. They are known as the Asiatic Ladybug (Harmonia axyridis).

    I am not sure now that they actually do turn red. I think they are called the Multicolored Asian Ladybug which comes in a variety of different shades. This morning I took some shots of the different kinds and I will post them later today.
