Pupa magic

Ladybirds have four stages to their life cycle similar to butterflies.

Egg

Larvae

Pupa

Adult

The Larvae often look different as they grow substantially. The pupa can be spotted attached to leaves.

Below is a picture of a pupa , I’m keeping my eyes peeled for larvae as well. The changes in the larvae take about a week sometimes two, it splits as the adult emerges.
