That is a very rare and pretty golden lady bug. Have a beautiful day!

Insects are always different, I think. Are they evolving faster than everything else?

The Cynical Sailor said...

I'm so used to seeing the red ones. I didn't realize they came in other colors.

Well, I don't think I have seen a yellow/golden Lady Bug before now. I wonder if this is considered an albino Lady Bug?

Black Walnuts... yum, I always make a Black Walnut cake for Christmas. DH loves it! I originally got the recipe from my late MIL. She made it with dried apricots and while that's good, I prefer the cake with out the fruit. Stores take forever getting black walnuts in the produce area, so I like ordering them from Hammons Nuts. You say it's National Milk Chocolate Day. Oh goody! *clap hands like a little kid* Just the excuse I need to have a piece of chocolate!! We bought a big bag of Hershey's Nuggets the last time we were at Walmart. I put them in the freezer because it's the heat softens the chocolate too much. The weather will change soon enough, though. Thanks for sharing the tidbits and photo. Feel free to join me for not-so Wordless Wednesday. Have a fototastic day, dear friend!

That's the first yellow one I've seen. We have red ones around here. I always make sure I don't hurt them when I find them. I've rescued a few as well.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ☺

First golden lady bug I've ever seen. Quite the find!

Catch My Words said...

It would catch my mind, too.

Marg said...

I think I have seen a golden lady bug before. But they sure are rare. Great picture.

Biologists say that God's favorite creature was the beetle because He made so many varieties of them. There are good ladybugs (red) and bad ladybugs (yellow with 14 or 16 black spots). I may be wrong, but I think the one you showcased is a good one who won't eat your plants.

Tomoko said...

You find such a pretty bug! The yellow bug with tiny black spot is new to me!!I hope you have a good weekend.
