Chilly ladybug

The afternoon had been warm, but as the sun set, the temperature dropped to near freezing again. On an old cottonwood, covered with lichens and mosses, we found a ladybug, sound asleep.

Sunny colours, but no warmth there.

She had probably come out of hiding, deceived into thinking it's spring by the sushine, and been caught by surprise out in the open. She woke up in a warm car, and now is happily exploring a bunch of leaves on my desk.


  1. I swear I heard a robin yesterday morning. But maybe it was wishful thinking. - Margy

  2. I think you did hear one. We saw three, today.

  3. We've had a couple about sleeping, too!
    Bizarre weather....
    Cheers from Cottage Country!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
