64 Ladybirds Fun &#039;n games. Created this about a year ago as a birthday card for a friend. A new birthday has passed, so I feel I can recycle it now :o)<br />
Not a very representative collection, with plenty of &quot;double species&quot; on it, but it&#039;s a fun and variable collection me thinks with Ladybird beetles of various subfamilies and continents, so might as well make it available as public domain here...<br />

  1. Are these photos all yours? Could you make a list of the species? Posted 10 months ago
    1. Yes, all mine - many doubles though ;o)
      I'll add a species listing to the description in due time .... not the most interesting set however.
      Posted 10 months ago
      1. Great, we only have 41 species identified until now, you probably have a few more to introduce separately.

        1. The problem is not so much availability, but time :o) Also, many of my images of certain species are somewhat older and low quality. These may serve well in a collage such as this, but by themselves these are nothing to "show off proudly" ;o)
          However, I've arranged with Ferdy that it's okay to "flood" the site with a display of Coccinellid images I have, with different angles and life stages for many species so that others may find these here too, but I'm having a hard time finding the time to sift through the thousands sitting on my disks.

          1. You know that low quality photos are accepted, even more so if they introduce new species.
            Thanks for the list. Just to make sure that everyone reads them in the right way - row 1 is the top row and numbering in the rows goes from left to right, doesn't it?
            Have you ever worked with someone with Arabic background? Mirror images ;)
            Posted 10 months ago
            1. Yes, "rows" are rows, not columns and this is mostly an English-language site so it's basically numbered sequentially the same way English is read: top left to bottom right ;o)
              I'll be adding plenty of species over time, also the ones that I only have bad images for ;o)
              Cheers, Arp
