What a lovely picture of nature.  I love lady bugs and the fact they eat destructive bugs  means they are nature's necessity. Thanks for such a professional photo!

I bought a carton a few years ago.  It came with instructions for how to release them, most of which I've forgotten at this point.  I do seem to remember that it had to be done in the evening.  So there's seems to be a trick or two to getting them to establish themselves in your garden.

@godi  What a great pic. I adore ladybugs and have some decor with them on it. Rarely do I see a live one. Thanks for sharing.
