They're not ladybugs, they're firebugs. We have ladybugs, too. The firebugs live off plant sap and can't be used for anything by humans ;)

LeeLee, what exactly are they? Are they ladybugs? If so, they look a lot different than ours in the U.S. The farmers here buy them for their corn crops to keep other insects off that eat the corn. In the fall, when they harvest the corn, the buggers don't know where to go and anybody living close to the fields gets millions of them all over their windows for a week or so! Ours are smaller and rounder and have 3 or 4 black spots on their backs. Very neat picture!

Thanks a lot! They can be seen in large numbers quite often but so far I've never seen that many.

About Leelee


I love taking photos - even if I don't put them on my wall or an internet site. I have learned to see much more since I took my camera along with me and every photo trip is a bit like a holiday for the mind.I'm happy if you enjoy my photos - but please don't take them and put them on your own website without asking or without a reference to the photographer or this site. Simple advice: Better get outside and take your own pictures!
