Saturday's Critters #2

And when you're gardening ... you see these pretty ladybugs. I saw this one in our garden on the Snowball bush In my language this little bug is called: lieveheersbeestje. This word may be a bit hard to pronounce.  It means: Our dear lord’s little bug.

En als je aan het tuinieren ben ... zie je soms deze leuke lieveheersbeestjes. Ik zag deze in onze tuin op een bloemknop van de Annabelle. Ik weet nog dat we heersbeestjes in Zeeland (daar woonde ik tot mijn vijfde) pimpampoentje noemden. Hoe noem jij ze?
 

 
In The Netherlands the logo of the National foundation against pointless violence is a ladybird.

How is the name of this bug in your native language or dialect?

  6. Ladybirds are nice to see. One year we had a garden plot and I saw lots of them. Your last photo looks like the ladybird is ready to jump and explore something else :)

  14. Ladybug for sure. There is even a children's nursery rhyme about this bug and every child learns not to kill one because they are a good insect. Such a pretty picture.
