Ladybug Larvae, Black Swallowtail Caterpillar and Carpenter Ants

I went out to trim my butterfly bush and found several ladybug larvae. They are so interesting.  It just amazes me how Yehovah created the insect world.

While trimming my bush I stepped in a carpenter ant pile.  One of the ants actually drew blood!!  I have never had that happen before.  In this picture it is a little hard to see the ants but there were a lot.

Here is an update on the black swallowtail egg that was laid on the 18th.  It has hatched and look how tiny it is.
