Ladybird beetle on a lords and ladies plant
Photograph by Paul Hobson

A ladybird beetle (Coccinellidae) explores a lords and ladies plant (Arum maculatum) in the evening sunlight, perhaps in search of dinner. This brightly colored, beneficial insect deters predators with its foul-tasting secretions while ridding gardens of aphids and other pests. Its seeming invincibility led to a reputation as a protector of crops. In European folklore, ?ladybird? and ?ladybug? relate to divine protection by the Virgin Mary, thus its distinction as ?the bug of Our Lady.?

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this notecard supports the Sierra Club’s efforts to preserve and protect the planet. Printed in the United Sates with soy-based inks on recycled paper.
