Here, I'm a star !

If you copy my photos don't forget to say where you got them from.

I've got 7 spots, but I'm only a year old. I only live for 18 months.

I am the most common and most well known of all the ladybirds.

My cousins have got either 2, 4, 9 or 11 spots.

In France alone, there are 90 different species of ladybird.


If my back is yellow that means I've just left my nymph.

If it is orange I'm still young at 1 or 2 months.

If, as in the photos, I am red, I'm a pensioner !
