I have been friends with Todd Ugine a long time. Though we’ve never met in person, I’ve developed a good relationship with both he and his wife, and through the computer screen I’ve watched his sweet girls grow. I don’t even remember how we met exactly, though I know it involves flickr, and now we’re IG buddies, too. His photos have always really inspired me, and along the way I found out he is an entomologist. After my post about using ladybugs in our garden, Todd kindly agreed to do a little ladybug Q&A.
Please help the Lost Ladybug Project by uploading photographs of ladybugs in your area to their website. It furthers the cause of science and is a fun, thrifty project to share with your kids. For free coloring pages, ladybug comics, lesson plans, identification tools, visit the Lost Ladybug’s Learning Page.
Thank you so much, Todd, for sharing your ladybug knowledge and amazing photos.
