Ladies Only


I love the weekend...for so many reasons.

One of them being, it's time for Camera Critters!!


And since my mom has been helping out with the blog this week, guest posting,
I thought I use some of her photos for today.


It's all about the Ladies...




Ladybugs, I mean.





She took these photos in Monterrey, California.

Did you see my mom's post on whales earlier this week?
Awesome photos.





Ladybugs are good luck.
I'm not sure why.


If I saw this many in one day, I'd go buy a lottery ticket!




What do you consider Good Luck?


You know the drill.
Grab a camera, find a critter and join Camera Critters!

Awesome pictures! I used to live out there and most my family still does. It's awesome to see the spring birth migration of swarms of ladybugs. This site tells you concisely about the little ladies. http://www.marchbiological.com/L/ladybug.html

I love ladybugs... I mean, we need them anyway as a pest eater, but if I saw that many in one spot I think it'd give me the willies!
Is your mom a professional photographer? Her pics are amazing!

Justine :o )

My daughter loves lady bugs.
Great shots.

Swirl Girl said...

so many ladybugs together kind of creeps me out....oh sure, one or two is cute. But, 100 is a swarm.
Really cool pictures , though.

daisigirl said...

Love the photos! My mom calls me ladybug. I bought some ladybugs for my garden once. It was really weird to get live things in the mail like that!

Cristin said...

We've had some serius lady bug infestations here... when your house is covered in thousands of them and your walls and ceilings are crawling with them, they lose their charm....

Kat said...

Your mom takes some pretty amazing pictures! I love all the lady bugs.

So...has your mom caught the blogging bug?

Jen said...

Holy cow that is a lot of ladybugs!

Lynette said...

btw did you know lady bugs bite!

Rebecca Jo said...

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I have to say - I always love ladybugs but in mass quanitites like this - it freaks me out...bugs that are together in numbers more than 2 just give me chills!!!

Snap said...

Now I know where all the ladybugs are! I haven't seen one yet here. !!!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

That is incredible!! Amazing photos! Yeah, I think I'd go buy a ticket also.

G. Crappy said...

Now that I've seen that many in one day, I'm headed to 7-11 to get a lottery ticket or two. LOL

Awesome photos.

Carolina said...

Great shots. There must have been quite a few aphids there, for the ladybirds to feed on.
I have never seen so many of them together.

Bruce said...

Good luck to me is a bowl full of food:) I have NEVER seen so many lady bugs in my life!! Great photos!!

Erika Jean said...

this reminds me of freshman year of college. we had a ladybug attack! hmmm.. I think that would make for a good friday flashback on my blog! lol thanks for jogging my memory!!

Tink *~*~* said...

Holy cow, I don't think I've ever seen that many lady bugs in one spot! I have always heard that they are lucky, too. They are very good for your garden, this I know!

Misty Dawn said...

AWESOME photos!!! My luck has run dry lately... may I borrow some of your ladies?

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I've never seen so many ladybugs in one place!

Maybe they're considered lucky because they eat so many bad garden pests. Or maybe because they are so pretty.

BedsideTalesMan said...

WOW!!!!! Tem is some Hot little ladies!!!!

Love the photos. and as far as bugs go...I really like lady bugs!!

Great post!

Kathy said...

Don't think I have ever seen so many lady bugs. Great shot!!

Veggie Mom said...

I know it's bad luck to kill a cricket or a praying mantis. Good luck? Whenever I see a falling star I wish upon it. Whenever I see a puffy cloud, I speak to it. I rub the penny in my pocket at my girls' swim meets...good luck or habit? And I flush ice cubes down the toilet and wear my pjs inside-out when snow is in the forecast--to get the "snow day" off from school, of course!

hotpants4979 said...

That's a whole lot of ladybugs.

Linda said...

Monterey is one of my most favorite places in the world. Great photos ... I love ladybugs!

Trannyhead said...

This totally takes me back to my college days. And no, I didn't go to an all girls' college. Instead, I had MAJOR issues with ladybug infestation in my freshman year dorm room. I HATED it! There was no getting rid fo them. You didn't want to kill them, because they were all cute and LADYBUGS and whatnot. And if you squashed them, they smelled gross. I just hated it! I had TONS of them in my room in every surface. Underwear drawer, window, bed, etc.

Ah, those good ole college days ... Heh.

Jill said...

Love the pics! I have never seent that many lady bugs together ever! Matter of fact I don't think I have ever seen more than one at a time.!

Denise said...

How very cool to find so many in one camera shot. Great photos!

Sally-Ann said...

I have never seen that many ladybugs in one place! Great photos.
Ladybug, ladybug fly away home
Your house is on fire and your children are gone
Kind of a depressing nursery rythme - can't remember how to spell that!!
What do I consider good luck?? Finding my hubby.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Great pictures! I love ladybugs. I have a lot of silly superstitions about good/bad luck.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Ok, that is weird. And freaky. I've got the willies.

Eyelashes falling are good luck. Wait, no, those are for wishing.

Um, 4 leaf clovers?

Scary Mommy said...

Very cool, although I get totally freaked put by ladybugs! On my wedding day, they were swarming around me. Everybody was all, oooh good luck, yay! But I was grossed out to be covered in ... bugs.

Dianne said...

I've never seen more than 1 ladybug at a time! this is amazing

Julie said...

wow...I've never seen such a collection of ladybugs. I like them, but I think if I ran across that many at once, it would give me the heebie jeebies :P

floreta said...

lisaschaos said...

I just love it when they gather! So many of them!

the mama bird diaries said...

Wow. Amazing pics. That is a crazy amount of ladybugs!

Mama Dawg said...

I want to barf looking at all those ladybugs. Those things are the scourge of the earth. They stink and are nasty. We get swarms of them IN THE HOUSE once a year. They're disgusting.
