I am the bug charmer ;)

Actually it seemed pretty busy doing its own thing like I wasn't even there, I was expecting it to fly off at any moment but it hung around for quite awhile.  It did get a little weird at one point tho, I leaned over it and cast  a shadow and it ran down and seemed to head straight across the ground towards me, then did a u-turn and went back where it was, :-O

I think as a result of being present all over the world they have many names including "Ladybird", "ladybug", and "lady beetle" and among others would you believe "Lady cows" :confused:

I know them by various names but I looked them up on Wikipedia and apparently most entomologists use Ladybird Beetle so I went with that one for the title, it seems this insect is not a true bug, go figure.
