Caption: The pupa (chrysalis) of the seven-spotted ladybird Coccinella septum-punctata, seen on the leaf of a creeping buttercup, Ranunculus repens. When ladybirds first hatch out they are yellow and without spots. The black spots begin to emerge within minutes of hatching and in hours the outer case has turned the familar red. Ladybird larvae and adults consume large quantities of aphids as their favoured food & are thus encouraged by gardeners.
