Seven-spotted lady beetle (Coccinella septempunctata)

Ottawa East

For the August Challenge -"It Caught My Eye".

This shiny red lady beetle on yellow tansy flowers really caught my eye. A non-native species introduced (several times) to control aphids, it is now fairly well established and has spread.

To see what catches the eye of others in the August challenge: https://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=49188&sid=e008164eae8b5d60fce3b98b87f175c0

at least somebody likes common tansy....the spots are well echoed in the tansy's button-like flowers...

I'm wondering if this is the kind that gets into houses and creates havoc. Great shot! V.
