Acquired a Ladybug During a Walk!

Post  Fiz on 7/2/2017, 4:32 pm

So I was just out walking with my wife and little one when I came across a young ladybug walking on the hot sidewalk. I immediately decided it must live with us, so I picked it up and walked it all the way back to our place a block and a half away and placed it on one of my SFG plants, lol. It tried to fly away twice on the walk but I was able to catch it again. Here he is! My son named it Francis, after the ladybug from A Bug's Life movie. He immediately made himself at home and started grooming itself (I think?) on the leaf. Hope he sticks around!

Edit: sorry, the pic is upside down!

Just remembered that the movie Francis the ladybug is from us A Bug's Life. Driving me nuts that I can't edit my post to fix that error, lol!

Thanks Sanderson! Now if only you guys could edit the hail damage my plants had last week. Laughing They are fine, but the rips and holes are unsightly, lol.
