Seven-spotted Ladybug larva
On 27 August 2013, several of us went to Pearce Estates, along the Bow River in Calgary, not far from Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. This was the first time I had seen any of the devastation along the Bow, caused by the Alberta Flood of the Century in June 2013. Masses of gravel and silt left behind and dried leaves and grasses plastered along fences, showing how high the water had reached at the peak of the flood - it would have been over our heads! One of the things that I was so happy to see there, on a tall grass species that no one has been able to identify the last few years, were several Seven-spotted Ladybugs and their strange looking larvae. Not sure I'd ever seen a larva actually moving before.
