  1. Interesting, I don't think I've seen any grouping of ladybirds. Posted one year ago
    1. This "group" under a sheet of rubbish on the ground was a little bit bigger when I turned it (maybe 20-30 orso) but by the time I got the camera out most had dispersed. I've never seen the huge aggregations known from some other species myself either, only one time an aggregation of Har.axy. in a building, but I've lost those pictures :o( Posted one year ago
