Ladybird or Ladybug?

In England we call it a Ladybird and in America they call it a Ladybug, so, what do you think, are you a birder or bugger?

Honey Bee (Lydney)

The Honey Bee is a pleasant little creature, all she has to do, is compile nectar for her queen, nothing else. Lovely.

Marbled White Butterfly (Lydney Old Refuse Dump)

The Marbled White has a bad reputation, according to Bob. When the sun is out, it starts to fly, I mean, it does not stop. Hard to get a photograph of it. And, when the sun decides to go inside, cloudy, the butterfly settles itself down, i.e. not photogenic. Hence, I took this one. Somebody will dispute it, but, I said it was "according to Bob".

Female Skylark (Lydney, the Marshes)

It's been raining, not the sort of day that helps the photographer. So, here I am, looking at my newer photos, and came across these little birds running through the grasses, see if you can find them.

7-spot Ladybird larva. (Lydney, the Marshes)

I have to tell you, that the Mallard Duck has disappeared, the RSPCA turned up and I talked to her. She would wait for me to phone her. At least she was on it. I shall be there every day until we find it.
The Ladybird larva was my first, so good to find it. Sorry, I could not find my macro.
