Ladybird on my doorstep 

The first ladybird of the year. At least the first I have seen this Spring.

As a kid I thought they were fantastic beautiful little fairy tale creatures. 

As a grown up I know they can be millions and then they are not fun at all.

In Swedish we call them KeyMaiden in a direct translation. Nyckelpiga in Swedish.

    • That’s interesting to know. I wonder if our naming of the ladybird, Maria Ladybird comes from Marienkäfer back in the days when many Swedes talked german.

  1. We call them Ladybugs, Anna. They are wonderful for the garden because they eat the aphids. She looks a little cold there. How about a drawing of her?

  2. I like ‘Keymaiden’ (and saw your explanation in the comments).
    Here I keep an eye out for the swallows and swifts arriving-a true herald of summer.
