Murder in macro

A wolf in the flock!

This ladybird larvae wastes no time in ripping into the herd of feeding aphids. Instead of sweet nectar, this one ejects blood from its rear. The Ladybird grub will have to feed fast before the Black ant guardians catch wind of her and rush to the attack. Their passion for aphids have made the Ladybird the number one friend to gardeners in England.

Everyone loves Ladybirds!
