Ladybug Taking Care of My Roses

This ladybug is tending to the aphids that are eating my roses.  Adults can eat about 25 aphids a day which, if this little lady has some friends, ought to give the roses nothing to worry about.

There are many types of ladybugs (remember- they are a type of beetle).  Since this one has no spots at all, we know it is a Western Blood-Red Ladybird Beetle.  A ladybug larva will also eat aphids, so protect them too!
