I doubt this native 7 Spot Ladybird will survive the cold. There have been 5 huddled into Magnolia leaf buds in my York garden over winter. I saw this one today literally hanging on. I didn’t dare move or touch it for fear of exacerbating an already precarious situation.

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”
John Ray (17th century naturalist)
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
