A Splotchy Ladybird

Back to walking today, and a fairly standard Boris Walk route today, basically all the day to one end of town, and back up to the other along the river.

This seemed to be a popular choice of route today, quite a few folk out walking, in a socially distanced way, although having to vacate a pavement for a guy on one of those daft motorised single wheel devices was very annoying.

Nature-wise I still haven't seen any swifts; they are obviously snubbing this town, as they have now been reported virtually everywhere else in the county. Cheeky things!

Only insects I saw today were to 7 spotted lady birds within inches of each other on flowering nettle. Same species, but rather different as one of ladybirds had had a malfunction with its spot-maker, leaving it looking rather splotchy.

Like me after attempting to paint anything.

  1. Aha! The very rare six-and-a-half splodge ladybird!

  2. It must have moved while its mum was painting the spots on.

  3. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
