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.

Carol, they turn red with black spots. They are known as the Asiatic Ladybug (Harmonia axyridis).
Thanks, Yvette. I learned something new about the mighty little Ladybug.

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.
