Creeping under the warming pan ...

Each of these Ladybirds was on my potted Rockmelons. There are so many in the veggie patch at the moment. I was reading that they love Coriander and Dill. Have the former but not the latter. Apparently, there are 100 varieties of Ladybirds in Australia, alone.
The red Ladybird is the eater of aphids. I have plenty of those critters, but a different variety than those which infest roses. The yellow Ladybird is the eater of mould, and as I explained last week, I have plenty of that. The little hairy critter in the centre image is a Ladybird larvae. Astounding, eh?
