a bowl of ladybugs makes a fun afternoon for my favorite neighbors
not even the tough boys could resist the spotted little beetles
Ana was the Captain of the Ladybug Brigade
she kept stopping to feed the little ladies a flower...
one, two, three ... GO!!!
"the ... the... little things... ladies-bugs... they're on the FLOWER! they're EATING the FLOWER! ...they don't eat the flower? why? cuz... cuz... my grandpa says bugs EAT FLOWERS! not these ones? heeheehee! I LIKE THESE ONES!!!"
"... but... but ... where is the ladies-bugs GOING???"
"...did ...did one went in my ear?"
Ana's brother happily takes back the bowl, assuring her there is no ladybug in her ear, and if one goes in, he'll take it out for her
... and suddenly they were gone, scattered like little ladybugs themselves, scampering home to sound that only they could hear - one that had to mean dinner time. The Captain and her Troupes did well - the 2010 release of the ladybugs was a complete success. Bravo.
