I adore ladybugs.
I think they’re the most precious and sweetest-looking little beetle.
Cute! Cute! Cute!
To me, a ladybug always looks so happy and joyful as they fly around; filling the atmosphere with their vibrant and festive polka dotted wings. And their happiness and joy is contagious. Admit it, what do you do when you first see a ladybug? You SMILE.
And I find it the most magical experience to have a ladybug gently land on me. I somehow feel blessed, as if a celestial being has visited me because (and I know this sounds odd but), the experience feels almost spiritual.
Earlier this week I was thinking about ladybugs, and wondering….
“What do you call a male ladybug?”
Well, I did some research online and discovered a bumper crop of information because apparently I’m not the only one who has wondered this.
Here are some humorous answers I found on a ladybug forum, in which people gave their opinions…
*Dragqueenbug - (this is my personal favorite, because if they’re a male ladybug who does a drag act, then they’re already dressed for the part)
And after doing more research I discovered that whether it’s female or male, a ladybug is called a LADYBUG (or Ladybird).
The males are slightly smaller than the females but, other than that…they look very similar.
So I thought to myself, the next time I see a bunch of ladybugs in the park, how will I ever differentiate between the females and males?
Oh wait, on second thought, I’ll know how….
Wishing a ladybug lands on you this weekend everyone!
